AboutEmpower Texans is a non-profit service organization. Through multiple media formats, we educate and inspire Texans to exercise effective citizenship. Using research, reporting, and advocacy, we empower taxpayers to advocate for good governance and hold their elected officials accountable.
The greatest threat to our state’s economic growth and competitiveness is the weight of government on the economy.
If government and taxes are allowed to grow without restraint, the economy will contract, thereby limiting opportunities for all Texans. We seek policy outcomes that provide increasing levels of economic liberty and opportunity for all Texans by controlling the size of government. Government power and reach must be strictly limited, with elected officials held accountable by active and informed citizens.
Formed in 2006, Empower Texans – and our premier project Texans for Fiscal Responsibility – provides Texans with news and information about the issues facing the Lone Star State. Texans must be informed about policy solutions consistent with the principles of individual liberty and free markets.
We have offices in Dallas, Houston, Midland, the Rio Grande Valley and Austin.
