Texas Lawmakers Work to Avoid Fate of D.C. and Sacramento


Posted by Patrick Gleason on Friday, February 6th, 2009, 12:00 PM PERMALINK


What better day than Reagan's birthday for a conservative group of legislators to release their priorities for 2009.  
Michael Quinn Sullivan, president of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, reports out of Austin that the Texas Conservative Coalition today "announced their fiscal priorities for the current session ‘to help keep our economy strong and growing’ by noting that the economic climate has been caused by ‘poor decision-making in Washington D.C. and lack of responsibility on Wall Street.’ High on their list: real reductions in property taxes.” 
Another top goal this year for the Texas Conservative Coalition, led by Rep. Wayne Christian (R-Nacogdoches), will be the implementation of a tax and expenditure limit that will ensure the state lives within its means and avoids the ill fate of their profligate counterparts in other states like California and New York.
 
ATR supports legislation by coalition member Rep. Ken Paxton (R-McKinney), House Bill 994, that would limit increases in state spending to population growth and inflation.  The text of 994 can be found here.
 
The TX Conservative Coalition outlined their priorities in a letter sent to Gov. Perry and other key state officials. To read the letter click  here and for Sullivan's full commentary click here. To learn more about the TX Conservative Coalition click here.
