AUSTIN – The Texas Public Policy Foundation on Friday submitted a response to the Office of the Texas Attorney General regarding a request for opinion that seeks clarification concerning the disaster reappraisal process.
 
“Texas law is clear — disaster reappraisal is meant to promote good fiscal stewardship and aid disaster recovery efforts,”  said Bryan Mathew, a policy analyst with the Center for Local Governance at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. “We urge the Texas Attorney General to issue an opinion that follows the intent of the law, and that protects taxpayers still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.”
