Texans among highest in property taxes, Failed for-profit colleges go unreported, Austin re-purchases biomass plant it rarely uses

Texas ranks somewhere in the middle in an annual study of state tax burdens, but that’s thanks mainly to the lack of a state income tax. Texas’s property and sales tax burdens are among the highest in the nation.

Almost a decade after the closures of a bunch of for-profit colleges left thousands of students with loan debt and worthless class credits, the Texas Workforce Commission still hasn’t provided a straightforward information system that might prevent a repeat of that debacle.

After having its accreditation yanked for the second time in two years, the Marlin school district is considering turning to a new law that allows a public district to hand over some of its management to a charter school operator.
