And it is an actual this beautiful villa along the water there in Naples. I mean, just along the sea, and it's like this, this glorious place where they have all sorts of weddings, and it's just so I'm thinking, maybe he is some sort of tied. A never been a lot of parts of Italy. Never Naples Naples. I've only been there on cruise ships and I have to tell you, I was so unimpressed. I was. So I was it was the absolute opposite. I was really disappointed just covered in graffiti, however, that's sort of in Maine city air. With.

Boy, I gotta make that trip. Naples? So. Through. So we go, there RIA, whatever you want. They husband did say he'd take a bullet for me. This. That he would, I would not pull him out of the way so fast. Down for the count. I love Cuba. That one time I went to Cuba Havana. It's like a city like no other shitty psycho movie set. The way it's set up nineteen fifties. Little if any of it has been fixed. The cars are all sort of. Right falling apart. It's indicate but it's, it's I've been to Madrid Barcelona. I hate that kind of Spanish architecture. But when you hit Havana, and you see the Spaniards architecture you like, wow, there's more like little bit in Wallin. She don't make stain little bit of the old Spanish field Venice, Italy. Yes. So kind of have has that everything is sort of falling apart yet. But it's beautiful. It's just it's magical Havana, roll back, maybe like fifty more years, and then vanish what and then send the ago which is further down the coast and beaches, a pristine amazing. And while the president of the United States has decided to ratchet it up against Cuba. Initiative to undo what Barack Obama did, which was to loosen up the relationship and free up travelers to be able to go to and from Cuba without the kind of hoops used to have to jump two years ago that momentarily. But people started to go down there and droves. They keep it wasn't quite ready for the American onslaught. But it's a place with people fascinated. That's why for years, the boards, tourism trade of Florida of Jamaica, all the West Indian Caribbean. Islands were praying that the beaded one Castro, which stay alive, and his brother, who because they didn't want communism coming down, because everybody would want to go to Cuba, the Pearl of the Caribbean. But because of the connection with Venezuela. And what was the failed coup, we talked about a one time. He and remember I said, it's a failed cool, right? We paid off all of Medeiros generals, and they kept him money, and they didn't sack the leader there. And so has this relationship with Venezuela, but people who had planned cruises, who had planned vacation to Cuba? They can't quite figure out why the hell all of a sudden we're undoing what Barack Obama had done. That's a shame. That's a real shame, the government should do what?.

"Here are Todd and dump something to wait Todd Jeffries and Don prior morning, as you know, the state lawmakers working their way through, you know, school finance bills and property tax relief. And some of the key points in the school Bill approved by the Senate, no sales tax increase, and they now say that they can find three billion dollars of additional money from oil and gas taxes plus taxes on online sales. That's that's new also the raises of five thousand dollars for teachers and librarians. That was originally a Senate idea local school tax rates would be lowered by ten cents not fifteen cents as they were seeking poor and minority kids will get all day pre K for a four year olds just some of the details. That are currently in the in the in this idea for lowering your property taxes at funding schools at the same time and joining us on the live Newsline from the Texas Republican party, chairman of the Texas GOP James Dickey, James good morning. How you doing? Good morning guys. It's a great to join done. Well, thank you very much. Just want to get your quick assessments as things are starting to change really fast. When it comes to this legislation. That's being proposed at the capitol. Your quick thoughts on school finance and property tax relief. Where do we stand this morning? What do you expect? There are a lot of moving pieces, and there's still things someone on what what we are really really hoping for and there there's a lot of misinformation out about that. But one of the one of the big things we are hoping for is that we can get the state funding of schools off of property tax, Robin Hood, only this because of state has has been doing that has been trying to cover its course in in school finding out of property tax that gets us close so an unconstitutional thing. But but not only that of course, how much the state spent and how much say taxes that matters and that matters at time, but how the state. Taxes maddow's? Also, that's why we all fight a save income tax because when you tax something discourage it and taxing income discourages income, and that's not good for the economy. And we want a better economy well property tax discourages ownership and investment, and that's not good for the economy either. So one of the big things we want to see is we want to see the state go to funding it's portion of schools, the the constitutionally required portion the state's supposed to be doing to be funding that off of sale sex with do they more fair more broad tax. And it's got the added bonus of a big portion of it being paid by outta shape. Folks who come into board tourism? Well, listen, the the the one cent sales tax increase it looks like it's off the table. Now. At least on the Senate side. It could come back. What are your thoughts? Yeah. So it's often on the Senate side on this Bill. There are so other bills could bring back a variation of it. Frankly, what our platform ask for what our legislative priority is for is much more than one sense up. Well, we wanted to do was entirely eliminate the property tax portion that is new to school maintenance and operations expense, which is about a quarter of all the property tax. Everybody pays actually does about forty five percent of the property tax. Everybody pays so we're looking for people to see yon Kyle in property tax, and they move of that over to sales tax, and there's a chance still. But that might happen. We got us. It does. Yeah. We had William Gaddis. He's the Williamson county. Texas sister collector there Williamson county he said, yeah. If we get a one cent sales tax, then the people will be paying more he amounted to a shell game. You get a few shackles and a few pennies savings on your property taxes, but you're gonna pay hundreds of dollars more per year in a sales tax increase. Peace. Yeah. With all due respect to him the legislative budget board who is not necessarily inclined to be friends. They they go at this stuff and they didn't analysis over the weekend. And what the house had proposed in terms of two point nine billion cut. Plus, the swat it would've meant not only a total cut in total taxes, but it would have meant a cut in total taxes at every income level. No matter what income level you were. It was going to be cut. Now. That's not what the Senate is now done in that Bill, but there are other bills still under consideration. The thing that's been all due respect him. I hear what you're saying. The thing. That's been rather frustrating though, there has been no talk of cutting. No talk of cuts in spending only talk of our. Well, let's hear it. Well, well, okay. Yeah. You're right. The the in all of the in all of what we're seeing we are seeing some increases in spending. And and that is a result of you know, years of pent up pressure on our legislators from from other stuff. You're right. What there is. At least thank God is there is not any discussion of spending. It all that that we because of a successful Konami because of growth because of the increase in population because of increase in property values. We're seeing significant increases in taxes collected and neither house ever started talking about spending all of it did increase, and we wish you know, we wished that increase would be kept population. Plus in place in. They're never thankfully was talking to spending at all. And and that for that. I'm grateful for you know, Republican leadership doing James Dickey, chairman of the Texas Republican party. Thank you so much for joining us for a few minutes here on the time.
