Senator Bettencourt: Governor Abbott stated that his "top priority" for the special session, which got underway today, is property taxes. Property taxes throughout Texas are growing 2 1/3 times faster than Texan's income. This is unsustainable. That is why I plan to introduce legislation (Senate Bill 1) in the special session for property tax reform and relief. As appraised values go up, tax rates should come down. This is why Lt. Governor named it one of his top priorities in the regular session and why it is such a critical issue for the special session.
Texans expect us to take a vote on the property tax reform and relief provisions in Senate Bill 1. Share and call your Representative, if you agree.
