Budget challenges face every county in Texas
said accounts for unique budget challenges each of the state’s 254 counties and more than 1,200 cities face.
“Sometimes one shoe doesn’t fit all. Different counties operate differently,’’ Casteel said.
Lawmakers are working to provide taxpayer relief, something Perry has been calling for for more than a year, while revamping the system that pays for Texas schools. Education funding
is now heavily reliant on property taxes. Both the House and Senate school finance plans reduce school property taxes by a third.
Perry believes that the tmth in taxation he proposed in his State of the State address will win approval in the House, spokesman Robert Black said.
Supporters of the legislation say they want to protect the tax relief by making local officials more accountable for tax increases that could eat away at the cut.
“What is the sense of cutting taxes if we’re not going to provide real property tax relief?” asked Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler.

Caterpillars begin hatching in March
After IO months, the eggs begin to hatch, usually in mid-March.
Once they hatch, the caterpillars, or larvae, feed on the tentier new spring growth of the trees from mid-March until late April.
The larvae are creamy white to greenish and have dark black or brown head capsules.
Trees that are heavily infested will usually be defoliated by mid to late April, when the fully grown caterpillars form the pupal stage on the tips of twigs, in bark crevices or on weeds and other plants growing near the infested trees.
Then, about the first of May, moths begin to emerge from die pupal stage, or cocoon, and begin laying eggs on the twigs of oak, hackberry, pecan and walnut trees.
These eggs will again remain dormant until the following March.
“The problem this year started in the southern part of the county and migrated to the north part of Comal County,” Avriett said. “We’ve had people calling our office saying they haven’t seen them this widespread before, but if you’ll let it take its natural course, you’ll probably be OK, unless they’re totaling defoliating trees. Next spring, I recommend people watch for the worms before
Oak leaf caterpillars spin their webs near theTexas Cooperative Extension office.
they get too big and spray them with an insecticide that contains Bacillus thuringiensis.”
