A standoff between the Texas House and Senate could be nearing the end, as both sides seemed to agree to some leeway on their plans to cut taxes in 2015. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott confirmed that he was working with the two sides to help reach some kind of compromise.
It’s been quite a bit of back and forth for the competing House and Senate plans over the past two months. Part of the Senate’s original plan called for cutting a portion of the state’s property taxes, something the House didn’t initially agree with. In the House, the Senate had taken issue with their plan to cut a portion of the state’s sales tax.
And when those talks hit a stalemate, Gov. Abbott stepped in to help facilitate an agreement.
