Advocating for public investments that improve people's lives.





WHAT WE BELIEVE

OUR PRINCIPLES

  1. A truly balanced budget adequately funds today's needed public services and prepares Texas for future demands caused by changing demographics, technology, and economic competition.
  2. A truly balanced budget is supported by taxes that are imposed equitably on families of different income levels and businesses in different sectors.
  3. Revenue to fund a truly balanced budget is generated from sources that will grow along with the growth in need for public services.
  4. Shuffling money among under-funded programs and shifting the cost of public services off the state budget conceal the true need for more state resources. 
  5. A truly balanced budget is developed in an open and transparent process.
