Legislative session ramps up with focus on budget concerns, tax cuts
Open Government measures gaining traction

Oscar Rodriguez, TAB President; Michael Schneider, TAB Vice President, Legislative & Regulatory Affairs
Although the preliminary budgets introduced by the Texas House and Senate vary slightly, both spending plans leave on the table about $8 billion, which will likely be dedicated to a combination of tax relief and a wide range of statewide policy needs. Potential tax cuts for businesses and homeowners will likely come in different forms. Lawmakers are eyeing changes to the franchise tax to relieve the burden on businesses. Options proffered to date include, continuing the higher revenue exclusion adopted last session and scheduled to expire next year, increasing the revenue exclusion further or eliminating the franchise tax altogether.
