Rep. King, R-Weatherford, calls session a success
No new taxes, some even cut
Immigration, entitlement spending remain a problem
The 84th legislative session may have ended in June, but Rep. Phil King, R-Weatherford, maintains his excitement calling the gathering of lawmakers, “successful.”
At the Rotary Club of Weatherford meeting on Sept. 29, King asked those attending to remain clear on the distinction between Austin and Washington.
King said, without question, it was the most successful legislative session he has been a part of.
He said the federal government borrows $4-6 billion everyday which accounted for the $18 trillion dollar national deficit.
The 84th Legislative Session intensified quite a bit this week. Many committees met until midnight or later, and the House Appropriations Committee voted to send the budget to the House floor for debate. I expect many more long days but am proud of the work being accomplished for Texans this session.
