Texas state law does not trump Federal law under these circumstances.
The Texas statutes of limitations do not have anything to do with bad debt reporting or credit history reporting. Simply because the creditor can no longer file suit to collect on a debt does not mean that the debt was not owed or was somehow illegitimate. Simply put, statutes of limitation regulate the date by when suit must be filed, and do not affect the legitimacy of the underlying debt. So, there are no Supremacy Clause issues here, at least not in the way that you present them.

You are talking about two different things. The statute of limitations is how long the creditor has to file a lawsuit against you for the debt. It has nothing to do with how long the debt stays on your credit report.
