Gov. Rick Perry Signs SCR 20
Measure ensures state can deliver on record property tax cut
Gov. Rick Perry today signed Senate Concurrent Resolution 20, a measure that allows the state to deliver on the historic school property tax cut passed in 2006.
"This measure will allow the state to keep an important promise we made last year to lower Texans' school property tax rates by one-third," Perry said. "I applaud lawmakers for sending me this resolution because it means homeowners and employers will see billions of dollars in tax relief, and more Texans will be able to achieve their dream of owning their own home."
