Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on the Biennial Revenue Estimate

Monday, January 10, 2011  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement on Comptroller Susan Combs' Biennial Revenue Estimate:

"Comptroller Combs delivered a revenue estimate today that shows the Texas economy continuing to grow steadily ahead of the nation, yet, as expected, is also reflective of the national recession's lingering impact on state revenue. To ensure Texas continues to lead the nation's economic recovery, state leaders must remain good stewards of taxpayer dollars, continue strategic investments and stand by the proven fiscal principles that have helped us balance our state's budget when facing similar challenges in the past. As families and employers are doing all across this state and nation, we will separate the wants from needs, and then cut spending.

"I am confident we will meet our state's needs within this revenue estimate by prioritizing spending without raising taxes, laying the foundation for our state's future prosperity."
