Texas House of Representatives Will Focus on Tax Relief

(Austin, Texas)  Today, Representative Tan Parker, Chairman of the House Republican Caucus, issued the following statement regarding tax relief initiatives in the Texas House of Representatives:

“I am proud of the fiscally conservative budget blueprint that my colleagues have put forth in the Texas House of Representatives.  This approach has us starting at a place that accomplishes many priorities for all Texans, such as fully funding public school enrollment growth, strengthening our border security and taking another bold step toward fully meeting our public highway needs.  Moreover, we start at this strong point by keeping spending flat and leaving billions of available revenue unspent with the clear intention that the Texas House will make a strong investment in tax relief for hardworking Texans.  Tax relief is a critical component to strengthening the Texas Model, and the Texas House will be hard at work this session on delivering the tax breaks that Texans deserve.”
