Patrick Outlines 85th #TXLEGE Priorities!!!


"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan."
Proverbs 29:2

Lt. Governor Patrick spoke to WFAA last weekend about his priorities next session:



Highlights:
  • Abbott's Con Con -- "In general, I support the concept."
  • School Choice - "One of my highest priority items."
    • Similar to the Nevada plan
    • State portion is portable with the student, school districts keep their portion.
  • Property Taxes - Local governments need to stay under population + inflation.
    • Lower threshold for rollback elections.
      • Author's Note: The taxpayer-funded lobbyists will pull out all the stops to derail this.
    • "I don't want anyone in the House this time standing up and screaming people don't care about property taxes."
    • "Whatever it takes, I'm going to do everything I can to reduce your property taxes."
