Local control is a tool, not a governing principle. The state legislature is free to use it or discard it situationally, and because it's not a governing principle, that's not a logical inconsistency. (1/4) #txlege
The #txlege has a compelling interest in the economic freedom of its residents who live in cities, and a compelling interest in preventing its cities from self-destructing. As cities tend to do. See Detroit, Baltimore, Chicago, Philadelphia, St. Louis, etc. (2/4)
Cities are not feudal city-states. The authority and responsibility of the #txlege does not stop at the municipal border. Cities are creations of the state, and not the other way around. (3/4)
Whether property tax limitation, education funding, tree ordinances, drilling bans, whatever--The #txlege has a compelling interest in the economic freedom of its residents who live in cities, and an interest in preventing its cities from spiraling down the tubes. (4/4)
