Texas 83rd Legislative Session: Rick Perry on the Upcoming Budget Considerations

Although Texas’s economy has been struggling, it has been doing remarkably well compared to many other states. In the current Legislative session, representatives will be debating the 2014-2015 state budget. The budget has an estimated 96.2 billion dollars in new revenue.

Governor Rick Perry has said; “Even as we head into the 83rd legislative session with higher revenues, we still need to focus on separating our wants from our needs.”
