Rep. Larry Taylor (R-Friendswood) issued the following statement on Galveston District Judge Susan Criss's decision to dissolve her order (sought by plaintiff's lawyer Steve Mostyn) prohibiting the Texas Windstorm Insurance Association -- a state-financed Coastal insurance company -- from giving financial documents to him:
"Today's order is a victory for open government and transparency. I'm pleased the court vindicated my position by removing the injunction. We, as legislators charged with important oversight responsibilities, have an obligation to work in good faith to solve the challenges facing TWIA. It's unfortunate not everyone involved in this process acted in the same manner. I look forward to receiving and studying the documents."
