Sen. Flores Urges Local Governments to Not Increase Property Taxes

PLEASANTON – Senator Peter P. Flores issued the following statement regarding local governments potentially raising property taxes:

"Increasing property taxes at this time would kick Texans while they’re down," said Sen. Flores. "People across this state were already struggling under ever-increasing property taxes––any increase during this difficult economic time would be too much for too many. Texas policy should always strive to keep people’s hard-earned money in the people’s own pockets."
