What other issues do you consider most important and how would you address it?

Joi Chevalier

Comptroller of Public Accounts


Healthcare: the Comptroller should provide special reports on costs to Texas in not implementing the ACA / Medicaid expansion. Texans carry the cost for uncompensated or underfunded care, no preventative care, or care pushed out to criminal justice and housing due to a broken ACA implementation and a failure by Republican leaders to have real data and prioritize this. We need to reclaim Texas’ dollars and use them here. It’s an outsized part of the budget and hampers prioritizing in other areas.
