ISSUES

The TCCRI Energy Project is focused on a variety of issues that encourage growth and innovation across the energy sector in Texas, including:

  • Pushing back against overreaching federal regulation of the oil and gas and electric utility sectors. 

  • Pursuing continued light-handed and fair state-level regulation of energy production and distribution in Texas.

  • Ensuring that state tax policy does not disadvantage large-scale capital investments, including those that are commonly made in the energy sector, the petrochemical sector, and other types of manufacturing.

  • Underscoring that innovation and competition are the cornerstone of environmental protection, not government mandates and regulations.
