EYE ON AUSTIN Transportation, school finance are key issues of 84th Legislature

Rep. Chris Paddie This past Tuesday, the 84th Texas Legislature kicked off in Austin. I am again humbled and honored that you have trusted me to be your voice in Austin and I look forward to hearing from you and working with you over the next 140 days. While the drafting and filing of bills is just beginning for the upcoming session, we already know that there are many important issues ahead of us. This legislature will tackle finding a long term solution for transportation funding, improving how we fund our schools, protecting our 2nd Amendment rights, protecting the unborn, and pushing back against an overreaching federal government.
The only task that the legislature is required to accomplish each session is to pass a budget. This budget will have to take into account the rapidly growing population of Texas, which strains our school systems, transportation systems, water resources, and other infrastructure.

By Angela Guillory

LINDEN-- Cass County Appraisal Board of Directors announced last week that they had discussed the continued search for a new chief appraiser. In October Chief Appraiser LeeAnn Lee announced she would be retiring at the end of the month in December. She has since agreed to extend her time until the end of January.
The search committee announced they have received three applications but only one appeared to be a viable option. The applicant was from a nearby county, which appealed to the committee.
In the meantime, until a new chief appraiser can be hired the board agreed to contract with Eagle Appraisal and Consulting to provide services as an interim chief appraiser two days a week in the office until a chief appraiser is hired.
