HOUSTON – Texas voters demonstrate strong support for a new, transparent and accountable economic development incentive program, according to a recent Greater Houston Partnership-Morning Consult survey.
Morning Consult surveyed more than 2,000 registered voters between April 21-25, 2023. Highlights of the survey included:
“This survey comes at a pivotal time when the Texas legislature is considering legislation to create a new economic development program for the state,” the Partnership’s Chief Policy Officer Taylor Landin said. “A new, transparent, and accountable program ensures Texas remains competitive in attracting large capital-intensive investments, which will bring jobs and long-term revenue to Texas communities.”
The survey also found Texas voters believe the top three priorities for the state government should be crime & public safety, health care, and immigration & border security. Additionally, twice as many Texas voters say Texas is going in the right direction compared to their sentiments on the direction of the nation.
