Charles Perry — Mixed Signals On School Tax

State Senator Robert Duncan has brought up the possibility of a statewide school property tax that would in effect replace the local school tax.  On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, State Rep. Charles Perry was non-committal regarding the idea.

“I’d really have to look at it and study it,” Perry said.  “Fundamentally, I would be a little hesitant to jump out there, but I’m willing to give Senator Duncan the opportunity to explain the details.”

Perry said he trusts Duncan’s judgment in many areas, and then regarding the statewide tax, Perry said, “I’m not opposed to it just straight off the bat, but right now,  I don’t have the details to know what he’s looking at.”
