Accountability

When bad actors put the lives and livelihoods of Texas families at risk, that wrongdoer should be held accountable. This simple concept, immortalized in the Seventh Amendment of our constitution, is under attack. Texans are slowly being stripped of their legal rights in favor of special interests. Texas families and businesses need strong accountability protections that ensure real consequences for bad actors.

    The U.S. Senate is likely to vote as soon as today or tomorrow on whether to roll back important financial protections for consumers and servicemembers. 

    The rule, rolled out by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau this summer, banned forced arbitration provisions in financial contracts that prevent harmed consumers from banding together in court. This allows consumers to hold wrongdoers fully accountable. But, due to pressure from big bank lobbyists, the new rule may be in jeopardy.
