Fish and Water Safety Account Funds Used to Balance State Budget

Quote:
An annual legislative tradition lives on with the approval of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s 2018-2019 budget. A pot of money in the agency’s largest funding source, Fund 9, remains unappropriated in order to help balance the state’s budget.

This year, the amount of Fund 9 is almost $47 million.


Why legislators leave hefty amounts of funds sitting in Fund 9 was amply demonstrated five years ago. Then, approximately 44 percent of the Fund 9 balance was used to certify the General Appropriations Bill (2012-13), according to the Legislative Budget Board.

Especially when they "sell" a tax as going to "X" to the taxpayers then turn around after it is passed and spend it on "Y".... bang

You mean how the lottery was going to solve every single problem in the Texas education system forever and ever?

Especially when some people get more back than they send in.....income redistribution pure and simple.....

Need to pass a law that prohibits anyone from getting more back than they put in.....will go a long way towards reducing the deficit....

Tax and spend and spend and spend and spend. ..

And they need more taxes since they are addicted to the free ride and perks. Ah, the waste. But it is such a rush to have total control of the peasants.


One shot is all it should take.

Fund 9 is also known as the Game, Fish and Water Safety Account since it may only be used for purposes related to regulating and protecting fish and wildlife and enforcing Texas’ water safety laws. Legislators, though, authorize much of its spending. The tight rein on Fund 9’s purse strings leads to programs battling each other for limited funds. For example, Texas legislators gave the go-ahead for TPWD to battle invasive aquatic species, authorizing it to spend $6.5 million over the next two years, but declined additional funding for the Texas Farm and Ranch Land Conservation Program, which keeps private land valuable in terms of fish, wildlife or agriculture from succumbing to development
