AUSTIN, TX – Governor Abbott announced his plan to rein in Texans’ property taxes. Chairman James Dickey released the following statement regarding Governor Abbott’s Property Tax plan:

“I thank Governor Abbott for committing to this serious issue that all Texas homeowners must face. Reversing the trend of escalating tax burdens is an integral part of RPT’s platform, and we appreciate this first step in helping Texans.
