LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR ENDORSES PROPERTY TAX CAPS

At a luncheon he hosted for the press on January 22, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst announced his support for legislation that would reduce the property tax rollback rate from eight percent to five percent and require a popular election to approve any property tax increase above that five-percent level.

Such legislation has not yet been filed in either the House or the Senate.

This is DewhurstÂ’s strongest statement yet on property tax caps.
