House Record Vote: 628

Passage; April 24, 2019; RV #628; Journal Page 2094; 95 Yeas, 43 Nays, 1 Present, not voting.

YCT Nay. HB 2806 would create a program to provide a rebate of certain taxes collected from certain music venues and promoters of certain music festivals. Texas has long been known for its thriving music scene, not because of special tax rebates from the government, but because of the ability of talented musicians to perform at venues where music lovers gather. Rather than provide special tax rebates to handpicked businesses, YCT favors reducing the tax burden for all businesses.
