Texas state government must be forced to spend taxpayer money responsibly.
House Bill 208, RV # 155, 2017 Session
This bill limited the growth in state spending based upon the rise in population and inflation. It was a priority for Governor Abbott and the Texas Republican Party
Speaker Straus obstructed the bill on the House floor. He was overruled by the Republican majority, and the bill was brought to a vote.
Linda Koop joined the Straus coalition and every Democrat to defeat the spending cap.
