Texas Legislature sends $217 billion budget to Gov. Abbott

Published on May 27, 2017 under CommunityImpact

By Edgar Walters Both chambers of the Texas Legislature voted Saturday evening to approve a $217 billion, two-year budget that would boost funding for the state’s beleaguered child welfare agency,¬†increase the number of state troopers on the Texas-Mexico border and¬†avoid serious reforms to the state’s much-criticized school finance system. The final vote in the House was 135-14. The vote in the Senate was 30-1.
