AUSTIN (AP) — The Texas House has advanced a bill designed to lower property taxes over objections from top cities, who say it will hamstring their budgets. The proposal requires city and county governments to hold elections if property taxes increase by 6 percent, letting voters possibly “rollback” that increase. Final House approval should come Monday. The state Senate has already approved a bill making it even tougher to raise property taxes. Top cities are accusing the Legislature of “overreach.”
