TRA and the TRA Political Action Committee have been very involved in the Texas elections and closely monitoring the federal elections. The makeup of the new Texas House of Representatives, Texas Senate, and the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, will have a big impact on restaurants and businesses on the issues of employment law, taxes, immigration, healthcare, business regulations, minimum wage, and a host of other issues.
Much like the rest of the country, voter turnout reached historic highs for midterm elections in Texas with 8.3 million casting ballots, not too far off the nearly 9 million Texans who showed up for the presidential election. In our latest TRA News Now, we take a quick look at election results and how they affect both the Texas Senate and House of Representatives as well as Congress.
