Krusee Is Frustrated? Felthauser Is Flabbergasted!

Krusee frustrated by failure:
Williamson County's state representative said Wednesday he's as frustrated as his constituents over the Legislature's failure to pass meaningful school finance and property tax reform.

Rep. Mike Krusee of Round Rock said there are so many different forces pushing the process in different directions, it has been impossible to come up with a consensus.

[and]

Krusee said legislators are caught between the need to provide more funding for schools and the need for property tax reform to reduce the school taxes paid by homeowners.
Click on the link for this article to read his excuse for voting "present" on HB 3. Sounds like someone wants to have it both ways.

KRUSEE MORE FRUSTRATING THAN FRUSTRATED

I was flabbergasted by the Taylor Daily Press’s report that Mike Krusee, southern Williamson County's state representative, claims to be as frustrated as his constituents over the legislature’s failure to pass meaningful school finance and his further claim that legislators are caught between the need to provide more funding for schools and the need for property tax reform to reduce the school taxes paid by homeowners. He seems to be overlooking his responsibility for this lack of results. He is a big part of the problem. His claims lack credibility considering his nay vote, with a minority of Texas’s House members, against the Hochberg amendment. This vote proves he does not care about either goal. This amendment would have provided money for schools and a fairer tax break on property taxes, but Krusee voted against it.

The Texas Freedom Network has given Krusee a ranking of academically unacceptable with a 0% rating on their records of votes which would show support of public schools. He has voted to privatize our schools, remove quality standards from our exemplary schools and use our public school money to support vouchers.

I think it’s time for a state representative who really will support public education in Texas.
