County Commissioners Oppose Texas Senate Bill Suporting Property Tax Relief


Also at this morning's county commission meeting, leaders adopted a resolution, opposing a Texas Senate bill relating to property tax relief.
Senate Bill 2 (SB-2) would limit annual property tax increases.
The bill, if passed, would reduce the 8 percent limit to four percent or lower to call a rollback election. Many local government officials say this puts a restriction on their revenues to finance different needs. 
"Local people decide who is going to be the people representing them and setting their taxes. If we're not doing that right, come tell me. Don't vote for me. Vote for my opponent. Take me out of office if i'm not running it the way it ought to be done," Woody Gossom, Wichita County Judge.
100 other counties in the state are voting on their disapproval of the legislation as well according to County Judge Woody Gossom.
