AUSTIN (AP) - Budget writers in the Texas House are set to unveil their own state spending plan after the Senate overwhelmingly approved a $195.5 billion two-year budget proposal.

The House Appropriations Committee on Thursday is expected to deliver a state budget for 2014-15 to the full chamber. Republican Tommy Williams, the chief budget writer in the Senate, says he expects the House budget to have more similarities than differences to the Senate version.

The Senate on Wednesday approved a new state budget by a 29-2 vote. The budget calls for adding another $1.5 billion to public education, which remains well short of the $5.4 billion that lawmakers cut from classrooms in 2011.

Williams says the Senate spent all but $410 million available to under the revenue forecast delivered by the state comptroller.
