Texans had the opportunity to weigh in on proposed constitutional amendments last weekend. I am so glad to report that BOTH Propositions 1 and 2 passed in a landslide victory – with over 85% of voters voting in favor of each measure – ensuring Texans’ property taxes are lowered!
Gives disabled homeowners or seniors 65+, whose school taxes are frozen, a further cut.
Increases the amount homeowners can deduct from their home’s value before school tax rates are levied from $25,000 to $40,000.
Texans demand property tax relief and that their voices are heard. This is a HUGE victory for ALL property owners in Texas…and we are just getting started.
It is my promise that in the Texas Senate, we are going to continue to do all we can to provide additional property tax relief so Texas taxpayers can keep more of their hard-earned money.
Illegal Immigrant Who Wanted to Test Our Jury System Got a Rude Awakening
A jury in Kinney County this week found an illegal alien who trespassed on a ranch guilty. He was sentenced to one year in jail and court costs.
Most illegal immigrants plead guilty, but this individual wanted a jury trial. He found out what Texans think about those who cross into Texas illegally.
The troopers did well testifying.

Campaigning for Pete Flores
On Monday I traveled with Pete Flores, who is running for Senate District 24, around Central Texas. We visited with the local papers in Marble Falls, Llano, Fredericksburg, Kerrville, Bandera, and Pleasanton.
Pete is a 27-year Game Warden who rose to the rank of Colonel. He has a rock-solid record on border security, pro-life, and pro-second amendment issues.
He is endorsed by President Trump, Senator Cruz, Governor Abbott, Governor Perry and myself. Be sure to vote for Pete Flores in the run-off in SD 24.
May God bless you and your family, and may He continue to bless the greatest state of all—Texas.
Lieutenant Governor of Texas
