Can’t find much on Rep. Krusee or Rep. Gattis so far in the special session. Both have voted the party line, rubber stamp, the whole way so far. Krusee had this to say about the passage of the business tax:
Thought to be wavering were some conservative Republicans concerned that they could pay a political price for enacting new taxes when the state has a robust surplus.
But supporters of the plan, trying to bring more votes on board, argued that it could have a political benefit.
If the bill passes, Mr. Perry “will run for re-election based on the tax cuts made possible by this bill,” said Rep. Mike Krusee, R-Round Rock. “People who vote against making the business tax fair are obstructing property tax cuts.”
By evening, support was solidifying again.
A vote for the governor and fair business taxes? From what’s coming out the “new” business tax is a huge tax increase for small businesses and a decrease for large businesses and corporations. Fair? I wonder how it effects foreign corporations? Well not to worry Rep. Krusee was at the seminar on rail in Central Texas yesterday. Not much to do with Transportation in this session so Krusee will be off the radar, just voting the party line.

“Lillian’s Law” was inspired by Lillian Stiles, a 76-year-old Thorndale woman who was attacked and killed by a pack of roaming dogs while in her front yard in Milam County last year.
