Highway fund, Rainy Day fund receive hefty infusions

by ED STERLING 

AUSTIN — State Comptroller Glenn Hegar on Nov. 29 announced the transfer of $1.47 billion into the State Highway Fund and the Economic Stabilization Fund, with $734 million going into each fund.

The transfer was enabled by Texas voters, who in the November 2014 constitutional amendment election passed a measure allocating at least half of the state’s oil and gas production severance taxes to the “Rainy Day Fund” and the remainder to the State Highway Fund for use on nontoll highway construction, maintenance and right-of-way acquisitions.

The transfer brought the new balance of the Rainy Day Fund to $10.98 billion. “The Rainy Day Fund is an important tool for our state because it allows us to maintain solid fiscal footing even during unforeseen circumstances, such as those our state encountered during Harvey,” Hegar said.

‘Tis the season

by TONI WALKER 

‘Tis the season. It’s a phrase that is that is heard from Thanksgiving until December 25. But what is it the season for? Let’s take a look.

For some, it is the season of overspending and raking up debt. People today are so consumed with “stuff ” that they are willing to rack up enormous debt just to have the latest gadgets and gifts. I see pictures of Christmas trees that you can barely see for all the gifts. Why? I mean, I understand about wanting to give your kids more than you had, but shouldn’t there be a stopping point? If not, people will believe they should get or be able to give anything and everything. And if they are ever unable to do so, it could spell disaster. So, maybe instead of purchasing everything they want, you teach them about getting less so they can give more. Let them pick out something for someone who may not get anything.
