Our local and state governments are committed to building the Texas economy and understand that the best way to do that is to support the employers who keep Texans working! Texas remains a right-to- work state with no personal or corporate income tax. Texas also invests in training the workforce so that Texans continue to have the skills necessary to compete in a global economy.
