Senator Paul Bettencourt (R- Houston) held a press conference to coincide with the release of the Senate Property Tax Reform Committee’s interim report. Not surprisingly, the senator’s statements and the recommendation to impose a revenue cap on cities is based on fundamentally flawed data comparisons that have been clearly refuted in previous editions of the Legislative Update.
Two weeks ago, the Legislative Update prematurely reported that federal overtime rules had been halted by a federal court. Well, that actually did happen after all, shortly after the incorrect article was published. (The article was later deleted.)
