    I applaud the forum and discussion and would hope that maybe it will lead to leadership on this important issue. It really is sad that seemingly the Texas House and Senate is incapable of providing relief for Texas taxpayers, i.e. can’t provide a “reasonable” cap on property tax appraisal increases, currently at 10%. A 4% or 5% cap would seemingly be acceptable to taxpayers AND still provide an ample supply of revenue (aka taxes) for local, school, county and state budgets to be funded. Heck, maybe these entities might even have to manage their budgets closer and really try to live a bit more on what they are given, vs. having too much money to be spent on grandeous “wants” instead of the “needs”. Honestly, if the current slate of elected folks can’t make this happen (as they were unable to in the last session) is it certainly a time for personnel changes and “fire” them at the ballot box a the next opportunity. The time to tackle the “real” issues effecting Texans is here and now…..Maybe less time can be spent on social issues (bathroom bill) and more time and effort on the pocketbook issues effecting Texas families.
