Texas Legislature And Budget Plan

Texas Legislature And Budget Plan

The Texas Legislature is working hard on the state's next two year budget.

Lawmakers slashed spending in 2011, but the state is expected to raise more than $100 billion over the next 2 years.

This week the Texas House of Representatives is expected to pass a new 2 year budget, totaling over $93 billion dollars.

This is a 15% jump higher than the budget two years ago.

The extra dollars were made possible by the thriving oil and gas industry and recovering economy.
