Dallas, TX – A new study ranks Texas as the number one state in America for female entrepreneurs in 2019. This is something to celebrate. Factors putting Texas in first place include its business-friendly culture, fair legal system, no corporate or income taxes, high rate of startup growth and quality living standards.

Dallas County Republican Party Chairwoman Missy Shorey remarks: “As a woman entrepreneur myself with a 15-year-old company, Texas’s ranking at the top is yet another reason to take pride in our state. People seeking opportunity flock here because of a welcoming business climate, friendly regulatory setting and a can-do attitude where anything is possible in Texas. There is a reason my business and home is in Dallas.”

“Serving as County Chair, it is exciting to meet dynamic businesswomen across the Lone Star State," says Shorey. "Regardless of how we might view particular issues, one thing unites us and that is there is no better place to do business–for both women and men–than in Texas. Each person that starts a business creates opportunities beneficial to all Texans including women, young professionals, minorities and anyone striving to reach their full potential."

Shorey Continues: “Economic growth is directly correlated to Republican policies that lower taxes and replace unnecessary regulations with innovative incentives. These policies have been a staple of the Republican-dominated Texas legislature for over a decade, as described by the Texas Economic Development Corporation. The results speak for themselves. Yet, we are at a pivotal point in history where voters are deciding Texas’s future. Time will tell whether gains by Democrats in the 2018 Midterm will negatively affect growth, but Republicans will work hard to keep Texas prosperous in 2019 and beyond.”

The 86th Texas Legislative Session began on January 8, 2019 and concludes May 27, 2019. Though Democrats picked up 12 seats in the House and two seats in the Senate, Republicans maintain a majority in both chambers
