Spectrum News: Straus says Senate needs to pick up pace on budget

“We always have differences, but what concerns me is that it doesn't seem to be a priority” for the Senate, Straus said

Via Texas Capital Tonight Host Karina Kling at Spectrum News:

House Speaker Joe Straus, R-Texas, isn't happy about the current pace of passing a state budget. So, he's "sounding the alarm" and pressing the Texas Senate to speed things up.

In a wide-ranging one on one interview with Capital Tonight anchor Karina Kling, Speaker Straus said the House is working "very" hard at a responsible, balanced budget and wants to see the Senate doing the same.

“We always have differences, but what concerns me is that it doesn't seem to be a priority,” Straus said.

The full interview airs at 7pm on Texas Capital Tonight on Spectrum News in Austin and San Antonio.
