Texans for Accountable Government
Texans for Accountable Government (TAG) is a trans-partisan Political Action Committee headquartered in Central Texas. TAG was formed with the ambition of reigning in the intrusive and expanding reach of government which threatens to invade every facet of our lives. Our ambition is to put the reins of government back into the hands of individual American citizens; allowing us to once again run our own lives.

Even with more citizen involvement than ever before, they continue to push, in a bi-partisan fashion, away from the Free country established by our Founding Fathers. At the local/state level, we have much more of an impact on public policy.
