Taxpayers funding their own opposition

The TML (Texas Municipal League) will "vigorously oppose" legislation that allows Texas citizens to vote on property tax increases.

One thing you learn very quickly when you get involved in the legislative process (state and local) is that MOST of the support for tax increases comes from within the government. Associations of government officials pay for lobbyists to lobby AGAINST the very taxpayers who provide the dues to fund these organizations.
