The Center for Public Policy Priorities is a member of the State Fiscal Analysis Initiative, and we monitor the state budget closely. While the recession may not be as long or deep in Texas, things are bad.

We urge Congress to provide additional state fiscal relief to ensure our state can meet vital needs and our economy fully recovers.
