UPDATE: Representative Turner and Representative Simpson Statements of Vote
ORIGINAL POST: How did your legislator vote on the Texas Budget
The recently-ended legislative session passed a budget which appropriated $22 billion more in general revenue and rainy day/economic stabilization fund money than two years ago. The increase was 26%.
AFP-Texas signed a coalition letter urging the Governor to veto the budget (http://americansforprosperity.org/texas/legislativealerts/coalition-urges-governor-perry-to-veto-budget-2/)
The budget contains too much spending and too little in tax relief.
Texas is the top state for job creation, we have 5 of the 10 fastest-growing cities in the country right here in Texas, and more businesses are moving to Texas than to any other state. We are the top state for a reason – we have enacted conservative fiscal policies, which allow the private sector to grow and jobs to be created.
We at AFP-Texas want to recognize and to thank those legislators who were willing to hold the line on spending – those 29 legislators who voted not to approve the budget.

Please take action to thank your legislator for voting to hold the line on spending in Texas. Texas didn’t become Number One by growing government but by restraining the growth of government. Click here to take action!
