A Review of the 83rd Session of the Texas Legislature

Texas Public Policy Foundation –

The regular session of the 83rd Texas Legislature was a mixed bag for fiscal conservatives. Though spending increased significantly this session, conservatives won on taxes and were able to bring many of their issues to the forefront of the debate. Additionally, Texas continued its long-standing practice of not increasing taxes. There’s more work to be done, but certainly some things to build on.
