Texas Senate Advances Less-Strict Tree Bill

Texas Senate Advances Less-Strict Tree Bill

The Texas House has tentatively passed a compromise on a bill requiring explicit patient approval for do-not-resuscitate orders in hospitals, advancing a much-watched end-of-life care proposal. On Saturday, lawmakers approved Senate Bill 1 on second reading.

Under current law, voters in a local taxing jurisdiction - a city, county or special district - can petition for an election to roll back the tax rate if the city's new revenue exceeds 8 percent. Any increases above that would have to go to the public for a vote.

"It does not provide one ounce of tax relief, and it is not meant to", Bonnen said. Opponents of the bill, including Austin Mayor Steve Adler, say it would put a strain on cities' abilities to fund public safety and other services.

Efforts to approve a bill that would restrict bathroom access for people who are transgender have stalled in the Texas House.

The Senate, which is controlled by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a strong proponent of the bill, approved such a bill during the regular session, and it became one of Patrick's first priorities during the special session. To see more, visit KUT 90.5.
