TRAPAC is the Political Action Committee (PAC) of TRA. It is organized to take a bipartisan, non-ideological approach to contributing to candidates for political office whose voting records and/or stated positions are supportive of the key issues of importance to the membership of the Texas Retailers Association.
Texas law prohibits corporate contributions to be made to political campaigns. Contributions are not deductible for federal income tax purposes. Investments to TRAPAC, the Texas Retailers Association Political Action Committee, are voluntary and are used for political purposes. The Association will not favor or disadvantage anyone by reason of the amount of their contributions, and you may refuse to contribute without reprisal by the Association. If your company would like to make a corporate contribution, this type of investment would be made to the Texas Retailers Association Government Affairs Committee.
TRAPAC funds go towards direct expenses related to legislative and regulatory initiatives. If you have any questions about TRAPAC please contact TRA at 512-472-8261 or email Jim Sheer, VP of Government Relations.
