Gov. Rick Perry Commends the House for Bi-Partisan Action

Tuesday, April 25, 2006  •  Press Release

AUSTIN –Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding passage of House Bills 1, 2, 3, and 4:

“I commend the House for its bipartisan support of tax reforms which provide record property tax relief and reform our franchise tax. By opposing a variety of exemptions for special interests, members of the House protected the integrity of our plan, which provides historic property tax relief and a fairer, broader business tax assessed at a lower rate. I look forward to working with the Senate to pass this plan so we can meet the court mandate and the popular mandate to enact meaningful school finance reform.”
