Promises about Legal Issues on Perry-O-Meter
Will seek a "constitutional amendment requiring a two-thirds vote of the Legislature to increase state taxes."
Pave "the way for ongoing job growth by purging unnecessary laws and regulations that stifle Texas entrepreneurs."
Will work for constitutional amendment limiting growth in budget to changes in population and inflation combined
Will promote a constitutional amendment to "require the Legislature to limit growth in the state budget to no more than growth in population and inflation combined."
"...we are going to designate it an emergency issue so it doesn’t get bogged down in any of the last-days-of-the-session type of a problem."
Have an eminent-domain "bill ready and probably passed and signed well before the legislative session is over."
“If a lawsuit is frivolous, Texas judges should be able to dismiss the case immediately before the legal bills pile up.”
Require “the legislature to explicitly state when they are creating a new cause of action in statute, forcing courts to read statutes strictly and providing only those rights and remedies the legislature intended.”
Make the court system “more accessible to Texans with legitimate claims without the incurred costs associated with drawn out trials. Lawsuits with claims between $10,000 and $100,000 should have expedited trial settings and limited discovery in order to get litigants in and out of court quickly and allow swifter recovery for damages.”
“If a court determines that a lawsuit is groundless or a jury determines a suit is frivolous, then the plaintiff should be required to pay the defendant’s attorney's fees.”
