Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on 2014-2015 Certification Revenue Estimate

Thursday, December 12, 2013  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding the comptroller's 2014-2015 Certification Revenue Estimate:

"Texas government budgets like Texas families, limiting spending and saving hard-earned dollars. As a result, Comptroller Susan Combs estimates our current 2014-2015 budget will end with a positive balance of nearly $2.6 billion. What's most remarkable is we've done this while passing $1.4 billion in tax cuts, and we've made historic investments in water and, if voters approve, roads. It's a shame Washington still hasn't learned, you can't tax and spend your way to prosperity."
