: F. Scott McCown, Executive Director of the Center for Public Policy Priorities (CPPP), issued a statement
in response to the release of the biennial revenue estimate by the Texas Comptroller for the 2014-15 State Budget. McCrown argues that the state legislature must develop a budget that reflects the state’s needs concerning Medicaid. CPPP also released a new education tool
developed from data published by the U.S. Census Bureau and other public sources that measures what families need to budget to receive basic needs.
