Yesterday, Rep. Biedermann sent a letter to all our local leaders in HD 73 and Governor Abbott asking them to work together to provide some property tax relief for our shared constituency. Biedermann said, “Texas has seen historic unemployment and the devaluing of our natural resources that fund our government. The citizens that we all represent are losing their jobs, and those who have jobs are seeing their wages significantly decreased. The burden of a government mandated shutdown due to coronavirus cannot fall solely on the backs of our constituents. I am personally going to fight to decrease spending on the state level, and I am asking each of you to take quick action on decreasing local budgets and lowering the tax rates for each governmental entity.” See full letter below.
