Rep. Carl Tepper

Our Lone Star story of the day: From the Texas Capitol in the 88th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature, I visit with freshman state Rep. Carl Tepper (HD84) about happenings in the legislature, property tax relief differences with the Senate, and his hopes that the House will move on serious bills to end the menace of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) programs in our state institutions.

Rep. Burrows patiently responds to an hours-long Democrat assault on HB2127.

House Calendars Committee chairman, Rep. Dustin Burrows (HD83,) joins me to talk about the passage of, and big Democrat fight against, his major bill (HB2127) stopping Texas cities from imposing regulations of their own in areas where state law is supreme. This fight on the House floor this week was the first major fight with the liberal Democrats of the session.

On property tax relief, Rep. Burrows admits that the he thinks the House’s bottom line on compromise with the Senate is that we get real relief for Texas businesses.
