News of the day around the Texas Capitol was the Comptroller's Biennial Revenue Estimate that sets the stage for how much the Legislature can appropriate in the session that starts tomorrow.
My interview in the video below is on the budget situation and how the Legislature must prioritize taxpayer dollars by starting government programs at zero dollars and then find those that are deemed effective. We need more reforms rather than budget inertia.
It should be a wild ride as legislators seek to cut taxes so more money is in your pocket while funding essential government services.
