  • Sen. Taylor & TLR Can’t Defend Insurance Immunity Act. So, They’re Attacking Us.

    Tuesday, April 28, 2015

    Sen. Larry Taylor and his allies at TLR want to distract attention from the terrible impact SB 1628 – the Insurance Immunity Act – would have on Texas families and businesses by resorting to direct attacks on Texas Watch.

    Proponents of SB 1628 know that they cannot defend this bill on its merits. It speaks volumes that rather than debate the merits of the bill, they are making personal attacks.
