TXTA Statement on Senate Passage of HB 19 
AUSTIN— Texas Trucking Association president and CEO John D. Esparza today released the following statement regarding the passage on third reading of House Bill 19 by the Texas Senate on a bipartisan vote of 31-0: 
 
“Today, the Texas Senate was heard loud and clear—Texas businesses matter! With the unanimous passage of House Bill 19, the trial process will continue to ensure accident victims are compensated when wrongfully injured, while also protecting businesses across the state from biased and unfair courtroom tactics. 
 
Thank you to Lt. Governor Dan Patrick for recognizing the serious threat abusive lawsuits have on the Texas economy and naming this issue as one of his priority items this legislative session. 
 
House Bill 19 has been through a rigorous vetting process spearheaded by the leadership of House author Jeff Leach (R-Plano) and Senate sponsor Larry Taylor (R-Friendswood). They have tirelessly worked to ensure this bill is a collaborative effort and that the input of all interested parties is heard and considered as demonstrated by today’s bipartisan vote.
 
We applaud the Texas Senate on the passage of House Bill 19 and respectfully urge the Texas House of Representatives to concur on all revisions made in the Senate.”
