STATEMENT ON BIENNIAL REVENUE ESTIMATE

AUSTIN — Today the Comptroller issued the Biennial Revenue Estimate (BRE), which indicated that the Legislature will have $104.9 billion available for the 2018-19 budget. Prior to last session, the BRE was approximately $113 billion. However, that number has been decreased to $107.7 billion, according to today's BRE. Last session the Legislature appropriated $106 billion in general revenue.

"We will align our priorities with the revenue we have available. I am confident we will pass a budget that meets our needs and keeps the economy growing," said Texas State Senator Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound.

SENATOR JANE NELSON represents District 12, including portions of Tarrant and Denton Counties. She is Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee and the highest-ranking Republican in the Texas Senate.
