AUSTIN, TX – Today the Texas Senate and House approved SB 1, the general appropriations bill.
Quote attributable to Senator Sylvia Garcia of Houston:
"This budget is more of the same and fails Texas families. There's no new money for pre-k, there's continued spending on more border militarization, and it continues to shortchange education and healthcare. It doesn't represent the values of my district so I voted against it."
