   New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 26, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas                                 said.  “That’s wonderful politics but not necessarily good economics,” Perryman said.  To make things worse, he said, most Internet sales don’t make their way into the sales tax system.  During a discussion on redistricting, now under way in Austin following the just-released 2010 Census figures, it was noted by Rep. Todd Hunter that Texas will gain four congressional seats and more influence in Washington D.C., at the expense of other states.  But the process of redrawing political district lines for Texas seats in the U.S. Congress, the Texas House, the Texas Senate, and the State Board of Education is a complex matter involving politics and law, said panelist Jeff Archer, who was the state’s attorney for redistricting in the 1990s.  “It’s kind of like a big puzzle," said Rep. Burt Solomons, chairman of the House Committee on Redistricting, who added "there’s always litigation” over the redrawn congressional districts.  “We have to do this by May 30,” Hunter said. “That’s not a lot of time,  FAR1H TO  Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst told attendees that Texas, arguably, does not have a budget shortfall.

Saturday, March 26, 2011 — Herald-Zeitung — Page 9A  LAURA McKENZIE/Merald-Zeitung  Jeff Archer of theTexas Legislative Council talks about redistricting during a panel discussion Friday at the 45th annual Texas Legislative Conference at New Braunfels Civic Convention Center.  CONFERENCE  CONTINUED FROM Page 1A  said, “Texas is a law-and-order state. We re not going to give up one square inch of Texas.”  During a discussion on the state budget, noted Texas economist Ray Perryman said the state has been growing at a pace of 1,200 people daily for 10 years, resulting in the need for more services and more funding.  But Perryman questioned whether the state’s tax structure is up to the task.  “Our structure is messed up. Our whole tax system isn’t the kind you need going forward. I would like to see us look at what kind of tax structure fits the economy we’re trying to build.” Perryman said the property tax isn’t a good tax to grow the economy on and questioned Texas’ reliance on the sales tax, which he called the cornerstone of the state’s revenue system.  Texans aren’t spending as much anymore on sales-taxable goods, lots of sales tax exemptions have been granted and sales tax holidays have been added, he  BREAK  CONTINUED FROM Page 1A  pumps played a role in strong traffic for a city poised in Texas’ water play paradise and on 1-35 between San Antonio and Austin, she said.  “What typically happens to us when there’s a rise in gas prices is that we seem to hold our own in terms of being a destination, because we have a significant population base within three hours. Three hours is a tank of gas,  and if you can do it for a tank each way, it’s affordable,” she said.  “If people had been planning to drive to Florida, they might choose to do that another time and do something like New Braunfels in its place,” she said.  At Rockin R in New Braunfels, spring break kicked the 2011 season off for the outfitters and the outfitter is now open daily on the Guadalupe and Comal rivers, said spokesman Shane Wolf.  “It was about like it is every  year for us — let us get some air in the tubes, get some employees out there,” he said.  “It’s an exciting time for us always — we’re just glad to have spring here.”  Over the weekend, tubers could be seen at the Chute in the 8500 block of River Road, laughing and sometimes making the loop repeatedly there.  While the river is running modestly, it’s still at recreational flow level — and the word is that rain is on the  way, Wolf said.  “We depend on the farmers, and they’re thinking we’ll get some April showers — we re needing to get the lake up to 909 by May 1, and then we have some agreements that go into place with Trout Unlimited for continued recreational flow,” he said.  At Bezdek’s, owner Johnnie Bezdek saw numbers that were highly concentrated.  “Spring break was very, very good — the best year in 36 years. And I’ve been here 36 years, so I know what I’m  DEWHURST  CONTINUED FROM Page 1A  up, stake us to the ground on the south lawn, torture us, and we still would not raise taxes,” he said.  He said Texans “have about a 15 percent less appetite for taxes as a percentage of disposable income than virtually any other state in the country.”  Dewhurst also said Texans are unlike most other people in other states.  “We’re a can-do people, industrious, innovative, self  reliant and productive.”  Texas has had a greater economic expansion than any other state during the last 10 years and is the only state that has created positive net new jobs, he said.  “In the last five years, we’ve created 80 percent of all the new jobs (in the U.S.),” Dewhurst said.  “Our challenges aren’t bigger than our determination. Together we’re going to solve problems and make Texas even better and get to the top of the mountain,” he said.  The House, which will begin debating the budget legisla-  tion next week, is contemplating huge cuts to public education and Medicaid.  The House budget calls for the state to spend $77.6 billion of its own funds over the two years. Even after an agreement to make a limited withdrawal from Texas' flush reserve fund, the Rainy Day Fund, the plan still would underfund public schools by almost $8 billion and Medicaid by $4 billion. The figures are contingent on passage of the plan to tap the reserve fund.  (The Associated Press contributed to this report.)

He sees dedication in the prospective tubers who come from around the state to float down the cool, wet beating heart of the state that is the Guadalupe.
