About 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. Their 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. TAG focuses on issues at the local, county, and state level. They believe in the principle of a subsidiary and that power should be vested in the nearest locality, as local representatives are much more accountable to Texas than are those over a thousand miles away in the District of Columbia.
