Texas Senate reduces property tax relief
Texas Senate early today approved a $4.8 billion property tax cut bill after stripping a new tax on partnerships out of the legislation. "..designed to cut public school property tax rates by raising business and consumer taxes. The burden of paying consumer taxes falls most heavily on the poor and middle class."

  • State sales tax would increase from 6.25 percent to 6.75 percent.
  • Cigarette tax would go up $1 per pack from the current 41 cents per pack, starting with 60 cents this year.
  • Alcohol taxes would be increased 20 percent.
  • Loopholes would be eliminated that allow companies to avoid the state's business tax. An estimated 10,000 additional businesses would have to pay it, bringing the total number of businesses paying the tax to 160,000.
  • Property taxes would be reduced from $1.50 per $100 of property value to $1.30 in 2006 and $1.25 the next year. Voters could approve an additional levy in each district.

The bill must still must be negotiated with members of the House in a conference committee



Rove's words on the Plame case have always been carefully chosen. "I didn't know her name. I didn't leak her name," Rove told CNN last year when asked if he had anything to do with the Plame leak. Rove has never publicly acknowledged talking to any reporter about former ambassador Joseph Wilson and his wife. But last week, his lawyer, Robert Luskin, confirmed to NEWSWEEK that Rove did—and that Rove was the secret source who, at the request of both Cooper's lawyer and the prosecutor, gave Cooper permission to testify.
