Updated: With the lone Democrat on the panel voting present, SB2 is kicked out of Senate Property Tax Committee

The Texas Senate’s key property tax reform bill – which could mean a four-year $7.2 billion hit to local taxing jurisdictions – was cleaned up in committee this afternoon and possibly on the way to the Senate floor next week, if Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick can find the votes.

The lone Democrat on the panel, Sen. Chuy Hinojosa, voted “present” as the Republicans in the meeting voted to move it to the floor.
