Run of Show:

Episode 17: Week ended 5.19.2023

Only 10 days remaining in the 2023 legislative session.

– Property taxes – House agrees to homestead exemption expansion. But the bill would also tighten up the appraisal cap, which the Senate may not like. Give us the details.

– Budget status – where are we?

– Possible $1 billion in Ike Dike funding

– Possible $1 billion increase in Texas parks funding

– Chapter 313 replacement bill, HB 5. Revisions made in the Senate to include 313 reforms, tighten up which projects qualify

– Grid reform – SB 2627, SJR 93 were passed out of State Affairs along with SB 7, the PCM guardrails bill. All electricity bills up in the House Saturday.

– SB 624 – retirement of solar/wind installations cleared the Senate by a 21-9 vote still sitting in House State Affairs. Do you think it will move any further in this session?

– Non-energy aside: Casino gambling dies yet again. Rep. Charlie Guerin says he’s postponed reconsideration of the proposal to the 2027 session. Can he really do that?
