Oh, yeah, the budget, too

We may finally get to some budget debate today, too. If you want to know where things stand, the CPPP, in particular Scott McCown, says:

"While the budget will spend almost 95% of General Revenue on education, health care, and corrections, too much has been set aside for tax cuts that mostly benefit upper-income families. As a result, many important needs will go unmet, while our tax system grows more unfair. The budget will keep Texas at the bottom in what we invest in our children and how we care for our most vulnerable." Here CPPP has prepared county-level information to illustrate the current and potential impact of state government spending in local communities. More detailed analyses of program-level impacts will be made available as soon as possible.

There's multiple links there with detailed analyses for those who want to know. Check it out.
