It's no secret that Texas relies on property taxpayers as their source of funding for more and more each year...
When the state does not fund its mandates, property taxpayers are stuck with the bill.
Did you know?
Property taxpayer protections can be put in the Texas Constitution.
A proposed amendment, HJR 73 by Rep. DeWayne Burns, passed the House on a vote of 127-18. Despite overwhelming bipartisan support, it stalled in the state Senate, never getting a hearing.
Similar measures already protect taxpayers in many other states.
If the Legislature acts, voters will get the chance to stop the Legislature's practice of passing costs on to homeowners.
If the Legislature believes something is important, shouldn't they pay for it? Homeowners shouldn't be treated like the state's no-limit credit card.
We can have a responsible, pay-as-you-go state government. Ask the Texas Legislature to give voters a voice in ending unfunded mandates!
