AUSTIN — Lt. Governor David Dewhurst today released the following statement on the revenue estimate:

"Today's revenue estimate from Comptroller Combs proves that our Texas model of low spending and repeated tax cuts works. By sticking to conservative, pro-growth principles, Texas continues to outshine and outperform the rest of the nation. Unlike Washington, Texas will once again balance our budget without raising taxes, keep state spending low and get government out of the lives of hardworking taxpayers. I look forward to working with Members of the Texas Legislature this Session to make sure Texas stays number one economically and in job growth."
