Abbott calls property tax relief a top priority for special session

Abbott calls property tax relief a top priority for special session

The lieutenant governor was up in arms about the transgender bathroom non-issue before the Fort Worth schools released equality guidelines for students last year. One of his biggest critics occupies the office on the other side of the building from his.

Among the additional legislation, lawmakers will debate ways to reduce property taxes, give teachers a $1,000 pay raise, and reconsider the so-called bathroom bill.

The federal government will allocate $2.3 million to the state to continue the fight on border-related criminal activity in South Texas, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced in a news release on Monday.

The Texas Tribune thanks its sponsors.

Abbott cast doubt that there would be "some genius moment in the course of the next 30 days where some brilliant legislator is going to come up with the silver bullet" to solve the persistent problem that has led multiple judges to declare the state's system unconstitutional.

Halfin says he's fought to save trees for many years and stands behind ordinances throughout the state that prevent property owners from cutting down large heritage trees. "I want that process to begin now", he said. "It's still taking money from our public schools and putting it into private schools", added teacher Julleen Bottoms.

Abbott drew his first challenger on Friday. "P$3 erhaps most importantly, Greg Abbott is perhaps the best fundraiser I have ever seen in Texas".

The operation began sometime in the summer of 2014 when then-Gov.

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick was also there and laid out his education plan. "IBM is going straight to the legislature to make our case that these types of laws are bad for business and bad for Texas".

Opposition isn't just in Austin - it's local, too.

Quorum-busting has precedent. In 2003, 52 House Democrats left for Ardmore, Oklahoma, to prevent the passage of a mid-decade redistricting plan.

Later, she posted the shot with the words #BATHROOMBUDDY on her social media pages, pointing out the obvious: Thanks to the politician's backing of the controversial "Bathroom Bill", she and Abbott have to use the same restroom. "They simply won't put their members at risk of feeling unsafe or, even worse, potentially denied services or public accommodations while they are here". They also asked the Legislature not to pass a so-called "bathroom bill", regulating public bathroom use for transgender Texans. "Let's spend our time on measures that actually matter to people, that move peoples' lives forward", Rodriguez said.

House Speaker Joe Straus has strongly opposed these bills and has sided with business leaders.
