CPPP Releases Analysis for 2014-2015 FY State Budget

TX: The Center for Public Policy Priorities (CPPP) published a blog post providing an analysis of Texas’ 2014 and 2015 two year budget period that begins September 1, 2013. The two year budget will provide coverage to 4.5 million low income Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries. However, CPPP notes that state spending is “not expected to keep up with the needs of Texas’ rapidly growing population and the rising costs of services,” meaning that some Texans will likely remain without coverage into 2015.
