Here’s how Texas’ proposed spending cap on cities would affect move to limit property taxes
One of Gov. Greg Abbott’s special session charges is taking aim at the spending habits of the state’s cities and counties. The bill, which Abbott said would limit the growth in local spending to population growth and inflation, will be filed by Sen. Craig Estes, R-Wichita Falls, and Rep. Jason Villalba, R-Dallas. Ashley Juergens, Villalba’s chief of staff, said the bill will also include a provision that allows cities to spend outside this limitation only with approval from voters through an election.
