Appraisal cap bill goes down
Rick Perry lost the legislative battle when Dwayne Bohac's property tax appraisal cap bill went down in the House. However, he'll keep it as a campaign issue.

I haven't seen any primary polling numbers on the issue, but my sense is that appraisal caps are both a popular and intense issue in a GOP primary campaign. Those who care about property tax appraisal caps are likely to feel strongly.

There's also the issue of timing: property tax bills generally come due around January 31, and the primary will be just a month later on March 7.

Perry has tied himself pretty strongly to this issue. I don't know where KBH stands, but she'll try to use the issue as part of a larger failure of Perry's leadership whether she supports lowering the appraisal cap or not.
