June 6, 2007

We hope you found our research and analysis helpful during the 80th Legislative Session. We are reviewing what the legislature did and didn't do in the session, and waiting to see what the governor may sign or veto. Over the next several weeks, we will release analyses of where Texas stands, including 1) an overview of the budget for 2008-09, 2) where we stand with regard to public benefits, particularly Medicaid and CHIP; 3) what has happened to public benefits eligibility determination, 4) where we are with Child Protective Services, 5) how we fared with regard to workforce and economic development, and 6) what the state's fiscal condition will be going forward. Please keep an eye open for these updates over the summer. If you have thoughts you would like to share with us, e-mail; we welcome your insights.
