AUSTIN — Texas State Senator Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, today issued a statement on the Biennial Revenue Estimate (BRE):

"This revenue estimate highlights the resiliency of our Texas economy," Senator Nelson, chair of the Senate Finance Committee said. "Tough decisions remain, but I am confident we can pass a budget that meets our essential needs, maintains our commitment to education and follows the principles of fiscal responsibility that put us in a stronger position than other states to withstand this unprecedented pandemic.”

The BRE represents the Comptroller's revenue projections for the remainder of fiscal year 2021 and the upcoming 2022-23 biennium, which provides a marker for the Legislature as it works to pass the state's two-year budget. The Comptroller will issue a Certification Revenue Estimate in the weeks following the legislative session to certify that the budget is within available revenue, as required by the Texas Constitution.

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.
