Texas Legislature Has Additional Revenue, But Demands Are Great


Dr. Dale Funderburk, Texas A&M-Commerce economics professor, discusses news that the Texas Legislature will have close to $9 billion more in funding over the next two years thanks to the booming Texas economy.  But the state comptroller says there are "IOUs" against that revenue that must be met before new spending can be approved.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
