What measures would you take to address the financial viability of the State of Texas?

Joi Chevalier

Comptroller of Public Accounts


Cutting costs is no substitute for creating revenue. The Comptroller’s office should work to increase revenue with regular agency audits to understand/fix lost revenues; support real school finance reform; close loopholes in commercial valuations; increase small business growth and expansion; update outdated consumption taxes; fully implement Internet taxes after the SCOTUS Wayfair decision; sunset old sector abatements; reduce Texas’ $50B debt to free Texas finances up to serve its citizens.
