Budget & Taxes
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 every Texan relies on the ability of our tax system to support those services.

Texas Biennial Budget Cycle
The Texas budget process begins during the year prior to each regular session of the state’s Legislature, which are held in odd-numbered years. Each state agency prepares a detailed legislative appropriations request (LAR) under the guidelines of the state’s Legislative Budget Board (LBB).
