The best part of paying your taxes is probably getting your refund check.
The Texas Legislature may not be spending quite like a drunken sailor, but lawmakers have certainly got the checkbook out as they work on the next state budget.
More than 2,000 teachers, students, parents and school administrators from around Texas are rallying at the state Capitol to demand the restoration of $5.4 billion in public education cuts the Legislature approved in 2011.
The Texas Legislative Budget Board set a $77.9 billion cap on state spending Thursday for the 2014-15 budget year, a 10 percent increase above the current discretionary spending limit.
A total of three North Texas school districts made the state Top 10 list of those with the most outstanding debt. For all but one, the amounts were more than $1 Billion.
