TLR President, Dick Trabulsi was recently interviewed by the Texas Tribune about TLR’s success in the 2010 election. Video highlights of the interview are posted at tortreform.com, along with a transcript. Dick provides a very good summary of our goals in the last election and what we are working for in 2011 and going forward. I believe you will find it interesting.
We will provide you with information regarding TLR’s 2011 Agenda when the Legislature convenes in January. Many of you have expressed an interest in establishing “Loser Pays” reform in Texas. “Loser Pays” is a priority for Governor Rick Perry and we are looking closely at the issue now. We’ll provide the details of our recommendations in the coming weeks.
We also hope you’ll revisit the TLR Speakers Bureau Video and invite a TLR speaker to your community group or professional organization in 2011. All the information you need to request a speaker is here.
We have a number of other new features planned for TLR’s website, tortreform.com, in the coming weeks including more frequent updates of lawsuit reform news from Texas and around the country. We encourage you to become a regular visitor to the website as we roll out many new features early in 2011. You can also find TLR on Facebook, http://www.facebook.com/tortreform and on Twitter, http://twitter.com/lawsuitreform.
Best wishes for a Happy New Year.
Richard W. Weekley,
Chairman & CEO
Texans for Lawsuit Reform
