Texas is too big for small thinking.
My plan to create one million jobs in Texas in the next 5 years:
1. Oil Sign Policy: If we sell more Texas oil, we create jobs. So, I’ll ask Texas gas stations to display the % of fuel made from Texas oil, so Texans can "Buy Local". Then, I'll work to get the federal gov'n to do the same across the USA. We put a man on the moon; we can track where our fuel comes from. Click Here to Read More
2. Self-driving Mass Transit: We’ll use the additional revenues from Oil Sign Policy + $1B from Rainy Day Fund (which holds $10B un-invested) to build a self-driving mass transit system powered by electric battery and compressed natural gas BOTH from Texas. Plus, Texas universities will be closely involved in design, engineering and development. Click Here to Read More
3. Lead the Nation in Education: “How are the schools?” Is the first question asked when considering a transfer. We can’t settle for 40th, let’s lead the nation. We'll accomplish this by increasing education funding while also lowering property taxes. The plan will raise $9 billion, investing $6.5 billion into teacher pay, scholarships and universal pre-k...and the remaining $2.5 billion will lower your property tax. Win-win.

Or, we can call a special session for a bathroom bill?
