TEXAS LAWMAKERS INTRODUCE BILL FOR SALES TAX HOLIDAY ON GUNS
- Creighton bill passed by state Senate expected to give financial boost to Texas ports
- Texas Port Expansion Act passes state senate
- Creighton clears up Pro-life Tort Reform bill
- Texas ports could get economic boost with Creighton bills
- Texas lawmaker rips liberal media for ‘fake news’ about his pro-life bill
HOUSTON (KTRK) — A tax free holiday for gun buying could be a thing in the near future here in Texas.
Some Texas lawmakers want the same type of shopping holiday for gun owners as we have for buying school supplies and energy efficient appliances.
State Senator Brandon Creighton from Conroe introduced a Senate Bill 133 that would waive taxes on all guns and hunting supplies on the last full weekend in August.
That is the weekend before the start of hunting season.
Creighton tried to pass the same bill last year arguing that Louisiana’s similar law undercuts sellers here in Texas.
