As candidates gear up for the final push to the November general election, voters should find out where their candidates stand on the important issues facing our state. Interestingly, in Texas and across the nation, one issue continues to bridge any partisan divide…lawsuit abuse.
As someone who talks to small business owners on a regular basis, it’s no surprise to me that a recent national survey by the American Tort Reform Association and the Sick of Lawsuits campaign found that an overwhelming majority (89 percent) of Americans agree that lawsuit abuse is a problem in this country.
The concern over lawsuit abuse cuts across partisan lines. And, as the November election approaches, nearly three-quarters of the survey’s respondents said they are more likely to support a candidate who favors reforms to reduce abusive lawsuits.
It’s our turn now to ensure we know where our candidates stand on this important issue. Ask.
