The 87th Legislative Session will open on January 12, 2021. The Texas economy has felt the impacts of the Coronavirus which will make it tough on elected officials in 2021. Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar now expects Texas will face a $4.6 billion deficit by the end of the current two-year budget cycle. The lack of funding will force political officials to think outside the box in areas such as financing infrastructure improvements, among others.
More details will be posted as we get closer to the session.
