Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick: Statement on the Passage of CSSB 27


“Citizens can fight back against government overreach.”


AUSTIN – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick issued this statement today following the passage of CSSB 27 – Stop Government Overreach, by Sen. Bryan Hughes, R-Mineola:

“Citizens should have a mechanism to fight back against any and all government overreach. CSSB 27 will ensure that when a Texan is a victim of what is determined to be a frivolous regulatory action by a state agency, he or she can recover their legal fees. CSSB 27 will help ensure that government reduces costly and unnecessary regulation and does not overstep its authority. I commend Sen. Hughes for his work on this important legislation.”
