Good Morning TACRAO!

To date 1,297 bills have been filed in the Texas Senate and House.  Only 5,000 more to go!

Budgets have been proposed and committee assignments have been made.  The Appropriations Committee has jurisdiction over the budget and the chair of the committee is automatically a member of the Legislative Budget Board (LBB).  The Ways and Means Committee considers all tax and revenue bills and the chair is also a member of the LBB.  The only bill that the Texas legislature is required to pass a budget.
