City Council Approves Resolution Opposing State’s “Revenue Cap” Proposal

Irving, Texas, City Hall

During the April 4 Irving City Council meeting, Mayor Rick Stopfer along with Council approved a resolution that opposes the Texas state legislature’s “revenue cap” proposal—House Bill 2 and Senate Bill 2.

If passed by the state legislature, the bills would impose a 2.5 percent cap on the revenue cities can raise from property taxes. For Irving, the bills would create a $13.5 million budget deficit, which would require cuts to public safety and infrastructure repairs.

While property tax revenue pays for municipal services, school district taxes make up the largest portion of a resident’s property tax bill.
