As your state representative I will work to stop higher taxes. Texas already has one of the highest property taxes in the nation and raising it even higher will only destroy the business climate we've worked so hard to build and that has made our state stand so strong during the country's worst economic decline since the Great Depression.
Along with that, let me also say that I will NEVER support a state income tax. Why do I mention an income tax? Because at this very moment, Texas is facing an $18 billion shortfall -- $18 billion. Politicians like my liberal opponent are already planning to use this as an excuse to raise your taxes. And they will try to use this shortfall as an excuse to impose a statewide income tax on all of us.
