Great News for Henderson County Property Owners from Texas State Representative Lance Gooden!

Big win for Henderson County Property Owners! We were able to include Henderson County into an annexation bill that only protected 9 counties without our amendm...ent. Out of 26 amendment attempts, ours was only 1 of 4 that made it onto the bill. We were unable to get Kaufman County into the bill but momentum is building statewide to ensure property owners get to vote before a municipality annexes them and sends folks a tax bill they didn't ask for. Special thanks to Lake Athens Property Owners Association, Inc. for all their help on this fight! We won the Amendment vote 123-17 and we have both Republicans AND Democrats to thank for voting with me on this.
