The Governor and House Leadership are at odds over spending the Texas Rainy Day Fund so as to avoid additional spending cuts: Rep. Jim Pitts, Chair of the Texas House Appropriations Committee, said he'll push for a committee vote early next week on a bill to spend $4.3 billion of rainy-day money in the current cycle. That would free up an identical amount to be added to the two-year budget now being drafted, he said.


Pitts dismissed Gov. Rick Perry’s remarks this week that no rainy-day money should be used — or even discussed — until lawmakers do more scrubbing of the budget.


“I don’t see the other options,” Pitts said.


Texas must live within its means – if you agree please let Rep. Pitts know.
