DALLAS (AP) – Gov. Rick Perry is visiting Dallas and Tyler to tout his tough stand on budget cuts and what he calls a pro-business climate in Texas.

Perry will first stop in Tyler before heading to Dallas on Tuesday afternoon, where he will attend a fundraiser for American for Tax Reform. That group opposes all attempts to raise taxes.

Texas is facing its worst budget crisis in generations. Some Republican lawmakers have proposed tapping the state’s Rainy Day Fund to make up for a $27 billion shortfall. But Perry continues to oppose any effort to raise more state revenue, or to tap the fund.

Perry is expected to use his public appearances to drive home that message.
