From Texas Public Radio:
Governor Greg Abbott plans to take another shot at reducing property tax rates after the state legislature rejected similar plans last session.
A bitter cold front blanketing much of Texas in snow and ice isn’t slowing down Abbott’s push to reduce local property taxes. The governor announced at a Houston news conference his office’s plan to cut local property taxes.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s rain, snow, sleet or hail; Texas legislators are going to be responsive to this pressing demand that Texans have to lower their property taxes,” Abbott said.
