There is nothing unfair about ag and wildlife exemption.
Not as long as property tax revenue stays in the district where it's collected. If we want to pay lower taxes, we shouldn't expect other counties to subsidize our schools, etc. by paying higher property taxes.
The robin hood scheme is indeed a travesty. I agree. The scheme is not the fault of ranchers and farmers.

I kept hearing on the radio today that the governor has proposed a 1% increase in sales tax to offset any reduction in property taxes. The way the radio was reporting, it would be after there is a reduction in property taxes. How come I got a feeling we about to get taxed more not less? I get the feeling that there will not be much of a reduction in property taxes, just enough for them to blow smoke up our you know what's about how they "helped" us out.

I bet a 1% increase in sales taxes could eliminate property taxes.
Maybe at the city or county level, but the state doesn't get any revenue from property taxes. So the governor's proposal makes no sense at the state level.
His proposal makes complete sense if he wants to raise our tax burden while pretending to lower it.

Claire Wolfe is known for saying "America is at that awkward stage..." but at this rate, I'm worried it won't be awkward much longer.

The number one (of five) legislative priority of the Texas GOP for the current session is Constitutional Carry. The number four legislative priority is reforming the school maintenance and operation property tax.

Given Bonnen's treatment of the number one priority, I am guessing that he will ignore the property tax reform as well.
What do you expect from a Democrat?
