The 2019-20 State Budget and Taxation Task Force will build on prior successes by developing a conservative blueprint for a balanced budget in the face of an economic downtown caused by the global pandemic. The Task Force will develop long-term reform proposals related to crafting a stronger constitutional or statutory spending limit, narrowing the permissible uses of the Economic Stabilization (Rainy Day) Fund, and reviewing the state’s economic incentive programs to ensure that they are meeting the needs of the Texas economy and taxpayers.

The Task Force will also study the state’s procurement processes and build on TCCRI’s previous work on state contracting. The Task Force will develop recommendations aimed at ensuring that Texas’ procurement process is open and accessible to potential vendors, while bringing value to taxpayers and being transparent to the public.
