Happy New Year! I hope everybody had an enjoyable holiday season and took time to step away from work and spend time with friends and family. For those of you still hip-deep in the audit process, I hope you are planning your summer vacations as well.  
The turn of the calendar year also begins the turn of the work year with property tax revenue collections, municipal elections and a new budget season all ahead of us. Hopefully, we are recharged and ready to take on another year of municipal finance as we continue to live in “interesting times.”  

For our Spring 2015 Institute, we will be changing from our usual venues in Austin to the Embassy Suites Hotel in San Marcos. The training will be held on April 12-14, 2015 and the conference planning committee is hard at work to line up a quality program with a broad range of educational topics. I look forward to seeing you there.  

As you are no doubt aware, the 84th Session of the Texas Legislature has convened. In the pre-filing period leading up to the session many bills relating to municipal finance have been filed. Below is a list of some key bills that relate to property taxes. The Legislative Committee will work closely with TML to keep the membership updated on significant bills as they work their way through the legislative process. We will be asking for volunteers to provide information and testimony on significant bills during the legislative session.
