State and local governments make it much harder than it should be to start your own business. Both native citizens and immigrants often wish they could start a business, but get frightened away by the mountain of red tape, fees, and regulations.

Politicians do this partly to protect well-connected businesses by shielding them from new, lower-priced competition. Government should not pick winners and losers.

I want to make it easier to start a business in Texas by reducing the power of government to get in the way.

Steps I would take:

*I would file legislation to reduce the power of cities to use permitting ordinances to limit and block businesses.

*I would file legislation to repeal many anti-competitive occupational licensing laws.

*I would file a bill to prohibit local governments from using tax subsidies to pick winners and losers.
