If any state can illustrate,and do so repeatedly, how bad government AND private industry can be, it's Texas.

Red state worker's compensation is a nightmare. Got paid, only three years after bk.

I don't think I can access most of that data and I work for a workers compensation insurance carrier in Texas.  I review claims almost daily (holy crap humans are stupid).

Texas, not even once.

They'll take away your right to your own body, give away all your personal data, charge exorbitant prices for electricity and it'll still fail, and blow up a chemical plant next to a school just for fun.

And the real kick in the balls is the victims of this will have to jump through all kinds of hoops, spend hours of time fixing this, stressing out over if their accounts will be drained or their credit ruined and the idiots that let it happen will be fine and wont have to help them fix it.

There was a proposed Tex*Ass tag many moons ago, along with the Japan tag. Drew ultimately nixed it.

The Texas tag would have it's identity stolen in the first 30 minutes.   It would then be frozen, and resold with the serial numbers changed to some life time in prison felon.

If you could find the right politician, under the bridge beneath the international crossing with all the DPS troopers waiting for their next potty break, and had the right amount in Bitcoin pesos, you could have the tag changed to Florida if TFG recognized you at his rally. Flabby chance.

It's the former

Welcome to Texas.

And yeah, be prepared to learn that they knew about the issue for years, but didn't do anything because an official audit hadn't occurred, which is why Texas agencies and Govt organizations are officially reviewed only once every few years.

Same trick was used to give their electrical grid the thumbs up while everyone in the industry knew that they are just a decent storm away from major catastrophe.

You think it's just Texas? A friend in OH, maybe 10 years ago, got hurt on the job, and they delayed and delayed, and demanded new doctor's visits, until they ran out the clock, "Sorry, no, it's too late for you to file."

Then the Gov bragged how much workman's comp money he'd returned to corporations.
