May 11, 2019

Tex­ans do not want an income tax, nor should they have one.”- State Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Kyle Biedermann

Rep. Biedermann Co-Authors Ban of Red Light Camera Bill That Passes House

May 8, 2019

“HB 1631, which I am a co-author of, was passed late last night by a large mar­gin ban­ning red light cam­eras. Red light cam­eras that are used to issue traf­fic tick­ets is a mas­sive over­reach by gov­ern­ment, has shown no increase in safe­ty, and is cost­ly to tax­pay­ers. I will always sup­port less gov­ern­ment, and fight for more free­dom and lib­er­ty.”- State Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Kyle Biedermann

Rep. Biedermann To Oppose “Tax Swap” in HJR 3, and HB 4621

May 7, 2019

“You want us to reduce spend­ing, not raise tax­es. As Repub­li­cans, the par­ty of small­er gov­ern­ment, that should­n’t even have to be said. We must make the tough deci­sions, live with­in our means and make the deci­sions nec­es­sary to deliv­er real prop­er­ty tax relief with­out rais­ing tax­es, espe­cial­ly at a time when we have bud­get sur­plus­es. That is why I will be oppos­ing HJR 3 and HB 4621.”- State Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Kyle…
