A Look at How House, Senate Budgets Compare

As the Texas House and Senate prepare to hash out a compromise on the state budget in the coming weeks, their members will have plenty of issues to resolve.

The House passed a $209.8 billion budget more than three weeks ago after nearly 18 hours of debate. More than a week ago, the Senate passed its own version of the budget, which totals $211.4 billion. This week, the House and the Senate announced who would be serving on a conference committee to resolve differences between the two plans.

Here’s a look at how the two budget proposals compare, using information from the Legislative Budget Board. Included are details on some areas where the plans diverge.

Julián Aguilar, Ryan McCrimmon, Morgan Smith, Alexa Ura, Edgar Walters, Matthew Watkins and Alana Rocha contributed to this report.
