I’m fighting for a Texas in which the tax burden is not disproportionately falling on homeowners.
Capping property taxes from local jurisdictions undermines their ability to provide core services. Rundown schools, lack of first responders, and traffic gridlock are not a solution to our affordability crisis.
Instead we need:
- The state to increase its share of public school funding to well over 50 percent (like it used to do)
- Appraisal reform
- Local options for freezing property taxes for seniors
- Closed corporate property tax loopholes
- New revenue streams, such as legalizing and taxing cannabis
