Burrows Brings Up Possible COVID-19 Penalties For Cities And Counties [INTERVIEW]
Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, District 83 Representative Dustin Burrows joined the program to discuss current issues in Texas as well as the nation.
Burrows and Hasty talked about the raucous movement taking root in many cities demanding that police departments be defunded, cities and counties possibly attempting to side-step property tax revenue increase limits using emergency powers in the wake of the coronavirus crisis, and much more.
Speaking about his recent joint efforts with District 7 Senator Paul Bettencourt, Burrows said,
He and I have also discussed the idea of a COVID-19 penalty. That if we have cities and counties somehow get away with jacking property taxes way way up during this time, this 2020 cycle...we should probably come back in 2021 and 2022 and force a lower rate to penalize them for having done that.
