HARKER HEIGHTS, Texas (KWTX) -House District 54 State Representative Brad Buckley met with disabled veterans in Harker Heights Saturday to provide an update on the legislative session that formally ended Monday.

Buckley met with members of the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 29. Buckley spoke on several legislative policies relating to veterans during this session including House Bill 125, a bill he authored.

The bill would have reimbursed certain Central Texas communities, including Harker Heights and Nolanville. for the property tax revenue they lose from the state exemption for 100% disabled veterans. Currently, 100% disabled veterans do not have to pay state property taxes.

Buckley assured his constituents that although the bill did not pass this legislative session he will continue to push for it.

Members of the DAV Chapter 29 also presented Buckley with an official DAV Chapter 29 cap making him an honorary member of the organization.
