Conservative coalition: Republican budget surpasses fiscally responsible limit, ignores key priorities

JUNE 17, 2019 | by Bethany Blankley | THE HAYRIDE (LOUISIANA)

“Some fiscal conservatives are criticizing Texas’ adoption of a $217 billion two-year budget, saying it drastically increases spending when budget surpluses should be returned to taxpayers. … Despite a nearly $10 billion surplus, the Republican trifecta government chose to increase spending by 12.5 percent, which some groups say is irresponsible. … Overall, Texas has $76.1 billion worth of available assets to pay $158.3 billion worth of bills. The result is a shortfall of $82.2 billion, or $10,100 each taxpayer would have to pay to fill the gap.”
