NPT Capitol: Moody’s 1st bill

State Rep. Joe Moody, D- El Paso, filed his first bill today.

joe-moody The bill, HB 1008, would exempt veterans that are classified as 100% disabled by the federal      government from taxation of the total appraised value on their residential homestead, said Moody’s office.

“I wanted my first bill to be something that I believed strongly in and that will benefit an important group of Texas heroes,” Moody said in a press release. “This bill helps the men and women that have served our country and defended our freedom.”

An identical bill was filed on November 11th by Representative Aycock (HB 62 ) and filed by Shapleigh in the Senate on the same day. It is common practice for lawmakers to filed identical bills, especially on simple but broad measures.

Moody, 28, is the youngest member of the Texas House.

  1. “An identical bill was filed on November 11th by Representative Aycock …” Copying someone else’s legislation and taking credit for it … what an accomplishment! What leadership! Next, Baby Moody wipes his butt in the Capital bathroom — ALL BY HIMSELF! Tell the El Paso Democratic Party to call for a parade!

  3. Moody’s response: “This is such an important issue that we want to make sure that all avenues for success are utilized. With more options on the table, we will have the ability to ensure that our veterans will be taken care of.”

  4. I did not vote for Mr. Moody but I wish I did. After meeting him, he is a good man and will do great things, and I’ll vote and campaign for him in 2010. John’s above response is John’s response and does not reflect non-democrats in el paso.
