TTARA Statement on Texas Comptroller’s Historic Biennial Revenue Estimate
Texas Taxpayers and Research Association President Dale Craymer issued the following statement today in response to Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar’s release of a historic Biennial Revenue Estimate:
“A historic surplus calls for historic tax cuts. The numbers suggest Texas could have nearly $50 billion more than lawmakers are allowed to spend under the state’s spending limits. Consequently, lawmakers should make tax relief their top priority – taxpayers should not be asked to pay money to the state that it cannot use.”
