The next Pandora's Box and General "Slush" Fund in the Glorious State of Texas
by Peter Stern
The Texas House and Senate are salivating over a statewide property tax. It is the same legislators year after year and the same business people who are appointed to education commissions who still direct the focus on how to finance public education. They have been unable to resolve the problem for the past decade, why should the public believe them now?
History also has shown that legislators do not have a clue on how to finance public education or how to improve our children's learning outcomes. The voters would be smart NOT to approve a statewide property tax.
