State Representative Phil King has a full slate of issues to carry to Austin when the 81st regular session of the Texas Legislature meets in January.

King’s list of planned legislation is geared heavily toward property tax relief.

According to the District 61 representative, he will file legislation to pass a constitutional amendment to require any state budget surplus to be used to buy down property taxes. Additionally he plans to propose reform to the current appraisal system.
