Bonnen prioritizes Lobbyists and Liberals on taxes....

"Therefore by their fruits you will know them."
Matthew 7:20

Fun times: Two months into the 85th Texas legislature, the Texas House's tax writing committee is finally going to hold their first hearing this coming Wednesday; you'll never guess who Chairman Dennis Bonnen invited to testify (actually, you'll totally guess):

For those who've never heard of them: The Center for Public Policy Priorities is a left wing think tank while the Texas Taxpayers and Research Association is the go-to "policy analysis" shop for every big business lobbyist at the Capitol.

Notice who's NOT on the list: The Texas Public Policy Foundation.

What this means: Lots of special-interest carve out bills along with a staged fight to "prevent tax increases."


Bottom Line: With Dennis Bonnen chairing the Ways and Means committee again this session, this isn't even remotely surprising though it is both revealing and (in it's own weird way) pretty funny.
