I recently cut a short video on my support for Gov Abbott’s Property Tax Reform plan, and explained a couple things I would add to make it even stronger. Please watch the video and see how together we can provide true, property tax reform and reduction.
In addition to Gov Abbott’s plan, I would add two things to make the debt provisions better:
1) Restrict bond proceeds from being used to subsidize short term expenses; you wouldn’t put your family vacation on your mortgage, taxpayers shouldn’t pay decades of interest on purchases with severely limited useful lifetimes
2) Require bond-approving elections to be on the general election date, not “in the dark of night” low turnout spring elections; a tiny sliver of a minority shouldn’t be able to enslave our children & grandchildren to billions in debt
Let me know what you think. Thanks!
