Some of the high points from the budget, and the session as a whole, Bonnen highlighted include:
• An $11.6 billion public school finance package. More details here. • $56 million to eliminate the backlog of untested rape kits across the state • $27.8 million in new dollars for human trafficking investigation squads • $210 million to improve staffing and technology in Department of Public Safety offices statewide • $2 billion from the state’s Rainy Day Fund for Hurricane Harvey recovery and future flood mitigation • Legislation placing Proposition 8, a state constitutional amendment, on the November ballot. Prop 8 would create the Texas Infrastructure Resiliency Fund that would provide matching dollars for Texas communities recovering from natural disaster to draw down federal funding.
