Claudia Geisendorff GOVT Professor Depperschmidt 4 December 2016 PR 10: Texas vs California: Which is Better? Rick Perry, the Governor of Texas, promised to avoid the huge deficit California faced at a whooping 25.4 billion, but, according to reuters.com, Texas is now facing an even bigger deficit at 27 billion dollars. Texas plans on cutting funding to welfare and education programs, which Texas has infamously been ranked low against the other states. California on the other hand, will probably raise taxes. California Governor Brown believes by cutting the spending by 12.5 billion and by taxing hikes more. Texas has long had no income tax and it doesn’t look like that will change with their very conservative attitude towards taxes. While the situation might have been building up for years like experts claim in the article, Texas also has over 9 billion funds for stormy days saved up from oil and natural gas production taxes. Texas has endured a similar budget cut in 2003, which it managed to weather without tax raising.
