Texas Reports on Use of General Revenue:
The tables in the report list the General Revenue Dedicated accounts and the balances that are used for budget certification purposes according to Section 403.095, Government Code.
Each legislative session, the Comptroller’s office provides the Legislature with revenue and balance estimates for these accounts as prescribed by Government Code 403.121.
In some cases, the Legislature appropriates more than the estimated biennial revenue for an account and then the balance of that account is used to fund the appropriations. When the Legislature does not appropriate all of an account’s revenue stream, or when revenues exceed the estimate, a balance will accumulate in the account.
The balances in General Revenue Dedicated accounts are available for certification of General Revenue appropriations according to the terms of Section 403.095, Government Code.
