The House Select Committee on Economic Competitiveness will meet on December 5, 2017 to discuss the important issues of economic growth and competitiveness in Texas. The stated purpose of the December 5 hearing is “to show businesses . . . the principles that the Texas House believes should guide the state’s pursuit of long-term economic growth.”
Businesses are in tune with the state’s long-term economic growth. They are part of it, and they are coming to Texas in droves. The oft-cited “Texas Miracle” is the story of economic growth in Texas despite a 2008 financial crisis and prolonged recession.
