Greg Abbott gave his state-of-the-state speech earlier this year, he lamented the fact that “Texans are being crushed by property taxes,” and declared that they “should not stand for it.” Pointing out that “[p]roperty owners are not renting their land from the city,” he reasoned that the state needs “property tax reform that prevents cities from raising property taxes without voter approval. We need serious property tax reform with a real revenue cap.”
