Tuesday, July 15: Grassroots America’s Executive Director JoAnn Fleming will be a featured speaker at the Texas Public Policy news conference in Austin. She will speak in support of the Coalition for a Conservative Texas Budget Plan for the upcoming 2015 legislative session. Why is this necessary now?
1) Many members of the press and big spending legislators are still upset that we exposed their big spending ways last session by showing they appropriated $44 billion, or 26% more in 2013 than they did in 2011, using budget gimmicks to hide the increase.
2) The Real Texas Budget shows all-funds spending will likely increase by 9% during the current two-year period, almost double the 5.1% increase published by the Legislative Budget Board days before the March primaries.
3) The Real Texas Budget undermines the Legislative Budget Board’s claims last year that real spending in Texas is declining, and instead, shows that the increase in spending above population plus inflation since 2004 will cost Texans $8 billion this year.
Wednesday, July 16: Grassroots America’s Executive Director JoAnn Fleming has organized a news conference at the State Capitol. TEA party leaders and representatives from other conservative organizations, including the Texas Border Volunteers, will speak out on the worsening border crisis and call on Governor Perry and Attorney General Greg Abbott to invoke Article 1, Section 10.3 of the US Constitution to protect Texas. They will ask state leaders to call up the National Guard and the Texas Military as defined in the state constitution.
