The Conservative Texas Budget (CTB) limits the Legislature’s increase in appropriations for the 2018-19 biennium to no more than population growth plus inflation. As the budget heads to the conference committee for final negotiations before consideration by both chambers, the passed versions of SB 1 by the Senate and the House indicate that they can keep appropriations below the CTB limits.
