The Texas Public Policy Foundation’s (TPPF) Bryan Mathew, Policy Analyst with the Center for Local Government, will discuss Tax Increment Reinvestment Zones in Houston at a panel sponsored by the Kingwood Tea Party on Thursday, February 2nd, 2017 at 7:00 PM in Humble, Texas.

“Tax-increment reinvestment zones are invisible governments that need more transparency and accountability,” said Mathew. “Texans deserve to know if they are staying true to their original mission of economic development, or if they are simply corporate giveaways.” 

Mathew is the author of the recently released paper, Tackling Tax Increment Reinvestment Zones, which examines tax increment financing through tax increment reinvestment zones and offers recommendations to increase effectiveness and transparency.
