Today, the American Legislative Exchange Council recognized Senator Paul Bettencourt, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Local Government, as the “2023 Legislator of the Year” for his part championing Texas’ record-breaking $18 billion tax relief package. As a result of his leadership, as well as many others, the average Texas homeowner will see their property tax bill decrease by almost $1,400 this year.

“The 88th Texas Legislature delivered a monumental victory for Texas taxpayers this year that lightens the load and keeps Texas on the pathway to eliminating the school M&O tax. This huge win was only possible thanks to the vision and leadership of policymakers like Senator Bettencourt,” said TPPF’s CEO Greg Sindelar. “Today’s award is well-deserved and a great accomplishment. Congratulations!”
