Texas has grown exponentially in the last several decades.  It is the second most populous state in the nation, with the 15th largest economy in the world. Texas state government, too, has become larger and more complex. As this complexity increases, it is more difficult for any entity that might be affected by government regulation to stay on top of what happens in Austin. If you want to do business, operate a group or run a local government in Texas, at some point you are going to need help in Austin.
