Texas House of Representatives Keeps the Focus on Tax Relief

(Austin, Texas)  Today, the Executive Committee of the House Republican Caucus issued the following joint statement regarding Texas House Republican Leadership’s commitment to explore more than $4 billion in tax relief efforts:

“The Texas House made it very clear from the start of this session that major tax relief will be a cornerstone of the state budget.  Today the statements by Chairman Dennis Bonnen and Speaker Joe Straus echo the commitment that Republicans have made to return a sizeable portion of our unappropriated revenue to its rightful owners, the taxpayers of this state.  The Texas Model is built upon the principle that tax relief and fiscally responsible spending plans will generate economic prosperity, and Republicans in the Texas House of Representatives are fully committed to this vision.”
