Hundreds chant Tax, Tax, Tax
AUSTIN (AP) - Hundreds of demonstrators who flocked to the Capitol are telling lawmakers they prefer higher taxes to reductions in vital state services.
A rally, organized by the Texas Industrial Areas Foundation and other community groups, drew a crowed estimated by organizers at 3,000 to the Capitol on Tuesday.
"The legacy that you leave should be greater than the heritage you receive,” said Barry Jackson, a leader of Austin Interfaith. "We want them to be courageous. We're willing for them to tax us.”
Speaker after speaker urged lawmakers to pass, and Gov. Bill Clements to sign, a state budget that wouldn't cut public education, higher education, indigent health care programs, child protective services and human service programs.
"Thank God you’re here because the cause is important.” San Antonio Mayor Henry Cisneros told the crowd. "The next IO days will decide whether we go backw ard or forward.
