April 18, 2013

Senator Jane Nelson was appointed today to serve on the conference committee for SB 1, the state appropriations bill. Senator Nelson is one of five Senators who will work with House of Representatives members to work out differences between the House and Senate versions of the budget.

"It is an honor to be appointed to the conference committee and I am looking forward to working together with my colleagues to pass a budget that is worthy of Texas," said Senator Nelson. "We must pass a truly balanced budget that protects our economy. We must also live up to our responsibilities on education, transportation, health care and other priorities. Because of the economic success we have built in Texas, we are in a strong position to meet our needs."
