AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry today announced his final decisions on legislation passed during the 83rd Regular Legislative Session. The governor applauded lawmakers for their work to keep Texas' healthy economy the envy of the nation and a beacon for employers and families looking for the best opportunity to succeed.

"This session we took broad steps to strengthen our state for generations to come. With the state growing by more than 1,000 people a day, the citizens of Texas entrusted us to make important investments in our communities while being responsible with hard-earned taxpayer dollars. I'm proud to say we've done just that," Gov. Perry said. "We passed historic water infrastructure legislation, created a new university in South Texas, and ensured every Texas graduate is better prepared for college or career. We've done all this while providing $1.4 billion in tax relief for Texans. This session will expand opportunities for success, and help us keep our state the best place in the nation to live, work, raise a family and run a business."
