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.
