Rep. Pat Fallon Thanks Texas Taxpayers
Austin, TX-- Amidst debate on the general appropriations act that will fund the State of Texas for the next biennium, one Legislator made sure to give a nod of appreciation to the group of people that actually pays for the state's budget. Speaking on the bill, State Representative Pat Fallon (Frisco) gave a speech thanking each and every one of the taxpayers of Texas. The speech was met with rousing applause from the House Chamber and Gallery.
"The government doesn't make any money nor does it produce anything. The private sector does that and the one person we should, must and will thank is the Texas Taxpayer. The one who paid for the budget in full" said Representative Fallon.
SB 1 now awaits final approval from the Governor before enactment. Representative Fallon reiterated his thanks to the taxpayers in his closing remarks for "making Texas the most prosperous state in the greatest country history has ever known."
