Perry’s Bait & Switch
Have you noticed how Perry has turned the discussion of school finance reform turn into a discussion of property tax caps? I am sure that Grover Norquist and Jim Lenninger are enjoying this dividend from their trip to the Bahamas with the Governor. The bottom-line issue here is that we have got to come up with an equitable and efficient means for funding our schools. Perry’s earlier proposal to limit municipal property taxes
died upon arrival. Perry reportedly will have an announcement on Thursday, and a special session remains a prospect, even though the calendar has turned into April. It still is not apparent that there is consensus in the Legislature for any school finance reform plan.
