MetadataShow full item record
This report on the Texas state budget and the Texas Budget Simulator on the World Wide Web are the final products of a policy research project conducted in 1995-96 under a grant from the Legislative Budget Board. The product is twofold: a report analyzing key issues and trends that influence the development of the state budget and the Texas Budget Simulator, which attempts to demonstrate the impact of choices budget writers must make. The Texas Budget Simulator is intended to be an educational device that illustrates the restraints and problems facing legislators who must produce the biennial budget. The report and the simulator were prepared by students and have not been endorsed or approved by Legislative Budget Board staff. Neither are the policy options recommended by students necessarily endorsed by the board as the best course to follow. They are intended to illustrate possible choices.
