Invest In Texas


  • State and local revenue systems that meet public needs
  • A transparent state budget process

Texas needs a budget and tax system that is fair, adequate, and responsive to our state's growing population and needs. The ability to invest in public services that will build a more prosperous future for all Texans relies on the ability of our tax system to support those services.
