Texas Tribune Shares Op-Ed Supporting Property Tax Reform in TribTalk
An op-ed written by Brett Williams, President of Texas BOMA, in support of Senate Bill 1 (formerly Senate Bill 2, The Texas Property Tax Reform and Relief Act of 2017, in the regular session) was shared by the Texas Tribune this weekend.
In the op-ed, Mr. Williams explains SB 1 provides much-needed relief to Texas business owners watching their property taxes increase year after year with little recourse, while local governments have lobbied state legislators to vote down property tax reform legislation to keep Texans’ hard-earned money in the coffers of local governments, instead of giving them a new avenue to fight increasing property taxes.
