Senator Sylvia Garcia Votes Against Inadequate State Budget
The budget leaves $11 billion untapped in the state's savings account

AUSTIN, TX – Today the Texas Senate and House approved SB 1, the general appropriations bill.

Quote attributable to Senator Sylvia Garcia of Houston:
"This budget is more of the same and fails Texas families. There's no new money for pre-k, there's continued spending on more border militarization, and it continues to shortchange education and healthcare. It doesn't represent the values of my district so I voted against it."

State Senator Sylvia R. Garcia represents Senate District 6 and serves as Chair of the Texas Senate Hispanic Caucus
