Townhall: Local Control vs Liberty

A Discussion on Local Control and The Role of Government

Join us for a townhall meeting featuring Senator Don Huffines, Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne and IPI president Tom Giovanetti, plus other local elected officials as we discuss local control issues versus the role of government.

Some political subdivisions - such as cities, counties, and special districts - have chosen to pursue regulatory policies which unduly restrict the choices of Texans and hobble economic freedom. This is particularly problematic when those restrictive local policies violate, contradict, or undermine state laws. The Texas Legislature must continue to safeguard liberty and economic freedom, protect the property rights of Texans, and remove burdensome regulations that drive up the cost of living and hinder job creation.

It is imperative that Texas strike a balance between local control and liberty.
