After visit with Abbott and Patrick, Warren Buffett's bill moves at lightning speed in Senate

Different carve outs with different support; TADA supports Buffett’s proposed exemption but not one for Cummins in a different bill

Following a surprise Texas Capitol visit by billionaire investor Warren Buffett this week, the Senate Business and Commerce Committee on Thursday moved quickly to shepherd a bill designed to help his automotive interests to the floor of the upper chamber.

The bill, Senate Bill 2279, was voted out of committee unanimously even though the language is a work in progress and the bill itself was just introduced the day after Buffett’s visit to the offices of Gov. Greg Abbott and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.
