Relating to the eligibility of certain events for funding under the
Major Events Reimbursement Program.
SB 2182 would ensure that the Texas Motor Speedway continues to be eligible for the Texas Major Events Reimbursement Fund, and would include the National Hot Rod Association Fall Nationals among those events eligible for funding.
Texas Action opposes SB 2182 because it violates limited government and free market principles. This bill would add another event to the reimbursement program, through which it may receive public funds to subsidize events. A more limited government approach would be to eliminate the fund altogether and increase economic prosperity through lower spending and taxes, and less regulation.
