Office of the Governor - Greg Abbott

House Bill 994 Becomes Law

Saturday, June 20, 2015  •  Austin, Texas  •  Signature Statement

I want to be clear that the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) can recognize an ad valorem tax exemption under Chapter 11 of the Tax Code for a property that complies with, or prevents the applicability of, a federal environmental rule without conceding the legality or policy merits of the federal rule.

Respectfully submitted,

 

GREG ABBOTT
Governor
