On Wednesday, Director of State Affairs at ATR, Patrick Gleason, wrote an op-ed for The Daily Caller where he describes Gov. Rick Perry’s dispute with the EPA. There are plenty reasons for the EPA to leave Texas alone. Aside from serving as the nation’s economic powerhouse over the past decade, Texas has been among the first states to emerge from the recession. According to a recent report produced by Dallas-based bank Comerica, Inc., the Texas economy began to rebound in September of last year, five months before job growth bottomed out in the rest of the nation.
FoxNews published an article about the battle over the DISCLOSE Act, and quoted government affairs manager at ATR, Mattie Corrao on the unconstitutional nature of the bill. “It tries to completely reverse what the Supreme Court has already ruled is unconstitutional. … This is just a regulatory overreach in the making."
