Sen. Sylvia Garcia
Mar 20th - 4:02 pm
The Texas Senate approved a $195.5 billion budget for 2014-2015 by a vote of 29-2 this afternoon. The dissenting votes came from Sen. Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) and Sen. Sylvia Garcia (D-Houston).
Both Davis and Garcia wanted to see more money put into education funding, which took a $5.4 billion hit last session.
The Texas House Appropriations Committee is expected to pass a version of the budget Thursday. The House has put together a very similar plan.
