AUSTIN- Wednesday, the Texas House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 9, which reforms the current method for limiting the growth of state government spending.
"This is another great step to bring budget transparency to the legislative process," State Rep. Brooks Landgraf said. "I was proud to stand with my colleagues in support of this important legislation that will preserve our Texas conservative principles."
The bill limits state government spending to population growth plus inflation.
This fiscally responsible legislation is expected to receive final Senate approval before being sent to the governor's desk.
The legislative session for the Texas House of Representatives and the Texas Senate concludes on Monday, June 1st.
State Representative Brooks Landgraf was elected in 2014 to serve House District 81, which encompasses Andrews, Ector, Ward, and Winkler Counties. Landgraf resides in Odessa with his wife, Shelby. He works as a cattle rancher and also practices law at the firm of Todd, Barron, Thomason, Hudman & Baxter, P.C. in Odessa. An Eagle Scout, Landgraf also serves on the Midland-Odessa Transportation Alliance Board of Directors, the Education Foundation Board of Directors, and the John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute Advisory Council.
