Statement of Gov. Rick Perry on House Concurrence in Senate Changes to HB 1

Gov. Rick Perry released the following statement on the House 136-8 vote to concur in Senate changes to House Bill 1.

"Today is a historic day in our state. With overwhelming bipartisan support, legislators have provided $15 billion in property tax relief, a net tax cut of more than $6 billion, across-the-board pay raises for teachers, and the largest performance pay plan in the nation to reward classroom excellence. I applaud Speaker Craddick and Lt. Governor Dewhurst on their extraordinary leadership on these bills, as well as the work of Sen. Shapiro and Rep. Chisum. All members of the legislature can hold their heads high, proud of the historic work they have done."
