On Friday, State Sen. John Carona told a Dallas group that the budget deficit would be anywhere from $18 billion to $25 billion. That guy doesn’t know squat. Turns out, it’s $27 billion. So says Comptroller Susan Combs this morning. Matthew Haag over on the DMN‘s Dallas ISD blog wonders what that might mean for class sizes. Awhile back, TexMo‘s Paul Burka came up with a way to trim $18 billion from the budget. Super. Now we just need to find $9 billion more.
This is gonna hurt.
