Texas state Sen. Don Huffines has introduced four new bills to the senate.
SB 61 would end state gas tax diversions meaning all taxes collected from fuel would be used solely on transportation and infrastructure.
SB 62 would bill the federal government for all costs relating to securing the 1,254 mile Texas–Mexico border including everything dealing with "illegal immigrants" such as "education, health care and incarceration."
SB 63 is a four-page bill that would enact a 6-year term limit which would take effect Sept. 1.
SB 64 would create time limits for litigation in appellate courts to speed up the processes so cases can not be dragged out for years.
In a news release which outlined the bills, Huffines wrote: "The voters of Texas sent Greg Abbott, Dan Patrick, and a slate of conservative freshmen Senators to Austin with a mandate for big, principled ideas to advance liberty and economic freedom. We are going to seize and deliver on that mandate."
Huffines represents Senate District 16, which includes a portion of Grapevine.
