Bonnen hears (at least) SEVEN (more) special interest carve out bills (14 for session)....


"Dishonest scales are an abomination to the Lord,
But a just weight is His delight."
Proverbs 11:1

It's that time of week when we check on the latest from Dennis Bonnen and the Texas House Ways and Means committee. Yesterday, the Texas Senate took a tangible step towards meaningful property tax reform (even if it doesn't go far enough).  How did the House follow up today?!?
