It is an honor to serve you in the Texas House of Representatives. The 83rd Legislature deliberated over 5900 pieces of legislation. We worked on everything from funding water infrastructure and revising testing requirements for students, to granting tax relief for small businesses. The work we accomplished will keep Texas on its prosperous track.
After a tough budget cycle in the last biennium, the Legislature returned to Austin to find the state economy revitalized. We passed a balanced budget for 2014-2015 of approximately $200 billion. While adding an additional $3.4 billion to public schools across Texas, we cut taxes to small business nearly $1 billion and addressed pressing issues like pension reform, water, and transportation. This budget strikes a fiscally responsible balance of investing in Texas' future while leaving a considerable amount of money in the Rainy Day Fund.
A critical issue this session was water. We set aside $2 billion for water infrastructure projects. You will have an opportunity to vote on SJR 1, a constitutional amendment to set up this water fund, on the November ballot.
Linked directly to the state's economic growth is education. Throughout the session, we heard from parents and teachers about the stress the testing system was placing on students. Your voices were heard. Through your suggestions, we passed HB5 giving schools more flexibility and tools to equip students for higher education and technical training required for the jobs of the future.
It is a privilege to serve you. I enjoy hearing from you and want to thank those of you who have written, called or come by the Capitol office. If we can ever be of service to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
