Rep. Dwayne Bohac pushes legislation to end all property taxes for Purple Heart recipients


Read the article detailing House Bill 1591, introduced by Houston Distric 138 State Representative, Dwayne Bohac. Bohac is quoted as saying:

"This bill is not about recognizing these veterans for a medal they received," said Bohac at the committee hearing. "It's about honoring them for what they gave."
