Legislative Agenda for the 84th Legislative Session

Unusual agenda?

The big elephant in the room of course is the drop in oil prices and the effect it has on forecasting revenue to support the state budget; particularly the impact on the gas-tax allocations and the state’s rainy day fund. Increased caseloads in health and human services require an additional $3.5B, the states’ retirement fund needs an additional $1.8B to be properly funded, and campaign promises to lower taxes must be fulfilled – all issues that the North Texas Commission will be advocating for on behalf of our members.
