Government Spending

In Texas, fiscal responsibility isn’t just a catch phrase. Kelly sits on the budget-writing Senate Finance Committee as well as the Legislative Budget Board and works hard to make sure taxpayer dollars are allocated wisely. While the State of Texas maintains a constitutionally-mandated balanced budget, Kelly believes we can do better by tightening the state spending cap formula and putting permanent overspending protections in place for future generations of Texans. He has passed spending limit legislation through the Texas Senate three times and will continue working to pass it in the full Legislature.
