TXOGA Statement in Support of Texas Jobs and Security Act

AUSTIN – Todd Staples, President of the Texas Oil & Gas Association (TXOGA) today issued the following statement in support of HB 5, the Texas Jobs and Security Act filed by Chairman Todd Hunter:

“Thank you to Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan and Chairman Todd Hunter for moving the Lone Star State in the right direction with the Texas Jobs & Security Act. For Texas to remain a national economic leader, we must use tools that other states and countries are using to attract businesses to our state, and this legislation will give our local communities a powerful economic tool to attract jobs and investments.”

Earlier this month, TXOGA was a signatory to a letter sent to the Legislature. This statement was also issued in response to the filing of HB 5.


Founded in 1919, TXOGA is the oldest and largest oil and gas trade association in Texas representing every facet of the industry.
