AUSTIN – The Texas Public Policy Foundation’s (TPPF) Center for Economic Freedom Policy Analyst Kathleen Hunker is testifying before the Texas House Business & Industry Committee TODAY, Tuesday, March 24, at 11:30 a.m. CDT or upon adjournment in Room E2.016 of the Texas State Capitol. Ms. Hunker is testifiyng on House Bill 1936, relating to notice by a property owner to a mortgage servicer that the owner intends to enter into a contract with a property tax lender.

“House Bill 1936 would invite banks and mortgage companies to interfere with Texans seeking to get a handle on their property tax bill,” said Hunker. “Over the last two decades, Texans have seen their property taxes rise faster than their incomes. This has led to a high demand for market-based relief, which tax lien transfers offer. By delaying access to tax lien transfers, House Bill 1936 would make it more expensive for Texans to get a handle on overdue taxes and may deny them the chance to restructure that debt on their own terms.”
