Lax oversight and limits on consumer rights have allowed some corporations to harm workers, customers, or the public at large. Just as individuals must be personally responsible for the decisions we make and the actions we take, corporations should face real consequences when they cause needless financial or personal harm.
Texas families shouldn’t be forced to foot the bill for corporate criminals. Nor should responsible corporations that play by the rules be forced to compete with bad actors who take dangerous shortcuts. We need strong corporate accountability protections that ensure real consequences for corporations that risk the lives and livelihoods of Texas families. This means penalties for failing to meet quality and safety standards, access to the legal system for consumers who have been harmed, and real oversight of corporate conduct.
