Topline interim budget cuts released

Interim budget cuts are out. See the press release from the Governor, and here is the topline list (pdf) of interim cuts that must be made during this fiscal year.

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice, the Youth Commission and the Juvenile Probation Commission all received partial exemptions. TDCJ must slash $55 million, but that's far below the $294 million in potential cuts identified by the agency. TYC must cut $18.7 million from this year's budget. And the Juvenile Probation Commission will lose $8 million. DPS will see $14.6 million in cuts, receiving no exemptions. See the list (pdf) of agencies that received partial exemptions.

No specifics in these documents beyond the topline data regarding what will be cut. Here's TDCJ's original list (pdf) of budget cut suggestions.

Too bad the sob isn't cutting his half a million dollar digs.

It is what it is...suck it up and move on. Tired of the 'old me' sick 'poor me', feel sorry for me.
Other state agencies are hurting also. Get a real job.

With less than six months to go before the midterm elections on Nov. 2, all signs are pointing to a tidal wave. Yesterday's elections indicate people are tired of the same old politics and spending.

That's right 9:26, people need to suck it up and move on!

If we could buy Perry for what he is worth and sell him for what he thinks he's worth we could balance the National Budget.

It's time to get rid of the lying scumbag SOB and replace him with a three legged yellow dog.

I fear that either way we go in the Governor election we're screwed. Am I alone in this? Doubt it.
