Fiscal Policy


Having served on the Senate Finance Committee for the past decade, Senator Whitmire has seen billion dollar deficits and billion dollar surpluses.

His experience has shown him that as long as the State of Texas continues to underfund critical government programs and services, we never have a surplus.

Senator Whitmire believes the State, like Texas families, must tighten its belt and look for efficiencies and savings. However, it is unacceptable for a State with our vast resources to rank at or near the bottom in funding for public education, health and human services, higher education, transportation and water infrastructure, and other core government functions.

Texas must revamp its tax system in order to meet the needs of our vast and growing population. We owe it to Texas families and businesses to be fiscally prudent with our tax dollars while ensuring all Texans receive quality and accessible crucial government services.
