Why do I need this bond?

Texas public weigher bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (public weighers) comply with all provisions of the Texas Public Weigher’s Law and all related rules and regulations. Specifically, these bonds ensure that all certificates of weights issued by the principal represent accurate weight or measure of a commodity.

If the principal fails to comply with these terms and conduct lawful business, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full penal sum of the bond.
