The Office Of Governor Greg Abbott today released a web video highlighting the signing of Senate Bill 2—monumental legislation that reforms property taxes for Texas homeowners and businesses and caps the amount that taxes can be increased by taxing authorities.

"With Senate Bill 2, Texas has taken meaningful steps to reform property taxes by reining in the ability of local taxing authorities to increase taxes, implementing appraisal reform, and ensuring greater transparency in the property tax process," said Governor Abbott. "By signing this legislation, we are delivering a major victory for taxpayers across the state and paving the way towards a brighter future for Texas."
