One of the big stories from yesterday was the ruling on the school finance trial, calling the finance system unconstitutional. However, Guenthner said this would not be the last we would hear of this case, and that the verdict will certainly be appealed

“The decision is at this point whether the appeal is made directly to the Texas Supreme Court, or whether it follows the traditional process for most cases in that it would go to the 3rd Court of Appeals. Typically, school finance cases are fast tracked, and if they fast track to the Supreme Court…the quickest would be the end of the year before you have a decision.”

Guenthner also talked about the margin tax created form the last school finance trial. He said the tax was very damaging for the state, particularly for small business, and that the tax should be phased out if not abolished altogether. Guenthner also commented on Governor Rick Perry’s ad directed at California, calling the ad a “brassy move,” but a move that Perry has been working one for quite some time.

Throughout the Texas legislative session, you can listen to David Guenthner Tuesdays at 9:05 during The Chad Hasty Show on NewsTalk 790 KFYO.
