#TXLEGE: (at least) 5 Good Bills Getting Hearings Next Week

"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Luke 12:34

Tuesday; Senate Property Tax:
  • SB 462         Campbell                
    Relating to ballot propositions authorizing certain political subdivisions to issue debt obligations.
Wednesday; House Homeland Security:
  • HB 238         Krause                  
    Relating to the enforcement of certain federal laws regulating firearms, firearm accessories, and firearm ammunition within the State of Texas.
Wednesday; House Ways and Means:
  • HB 2                         Burrows
    Relating to ad valorem taxation.
  • HB 705         Geren                
    Relating to the substitution of a county sales and use tax for all or a portion of property taxes imposed by the county; authorizing the imposition of a tax.

Wednesday; House State Affairs:
  • HB 281         Middleton               
    Relating to the use by a political subdivision of public money for lobbying activities.
    [Note: They're not on this website's priority issues, but several other bills on the State Affairs docket also look good.]
Bottom Line: Just because a bill gets a committee hearing does not mean that bill will make it to the Governor's desk, but it's virtually impossible for that to happen without one.
