Texas Budget Compact
Governor Perry gave a speech in Houston today and unveiled his Texas Budget Compact. He is calling for more budget cuts, no new taxes and preservation of the Rainy Day Fund. I strongly disagree with many of the points made by Governor Perry. We cannot afford to use a cuts only approach to balancing the budget. It is irresponsible to promise not to raise taxes before the legislature meets again. The official name for the Rainy Day Fund is the Economic Stabilization Fund. It is not equivalent to a savings account and should be used to prevent or reduce funding cuts to essential services and programs. I do agree that the legislature should not rely on accounting “tricks” to balance the budget.
