Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Economist Dr. Vance Ginn will testify before the Texas Senate Finance Committee TODAY, March 27, at 10:00 a.m. CDT in room E1.036 at the Texas State Capitol. Dr. Ginn will testify in favor of Senate Bill 9, relating to the constitutional limit on the rate of growth of appropriations.
 
“Texas’ weak appropriations limit is a problem that needs to be resolved to consistently restrain excessive government appropriations,” said Dr. Ginn. “Texas should adopt a more responsible limit to better control the growth in the budget. SB 9 would accomplish this goal by more effectively limiting the size and scope of government in Texas, allowing Texans many more opportunities to prosper.”
