KEEP TEXAS SAFE
Lawmakers in the Texas legislature have proposed two bills that would infringe on Texans’ constitutional rights, including the right to a fair personal injury trial in front of a jury. These bills would make Texas roads less safe for all drivers. Ask lawmakers to oppose HB 19 and SB 207.
House Bill 19 excuses truck and commercial vehicle driver fault for accidents in all but the most extreme cases, virtually giving truck drivers a "get out of jail free" card. It also absolves the companies that employ these drivers from any independent compliance with federal or state safety regulations, like training or maintenance for their vehicles.

Senate Bill 207 would create limitations on medical expenses and damages that could be recovered in a personal injury lawsuit, by tying physician compensation to payment rates set by the government and passing along costs to Texans, causing medical insurance rates to skyrocket for individuals and employers.
