What We Heard & Didn’t Hear in the State of the State Speech

Eva DeLuna Castro

Today, the Governor delivered his 7th State of the State speech. Here are some of our takeaways…

What we heard:

What we didn’t hear:

  • A commitment to invest in the people of Texas, no matter how much they make or their zip code
  • A promise to undo the 2011 cuts, including the unnecessary $5.4 billion cut to public education
  • Long-term solutions to fix our budget and revenue system and create a 21st century budget that works for all of us.

We’ll have more soon on what these priorities, and what the Governor’s budget, means for Texas.

    Does the $5.4 include the cuts to both higher education and public education?
