The Texas Education Agency has a reduction target of more than $260 million for the 2012-2013 biennium.

10 Percent Reduction Proposal

Administratorís Statement

Governor Perry and state legislative leaders in January 2010 asked each state agency to compile a list of state-funded programs that could be cut to produce a five percent budget reduction for the 2009-2010 budget year. Proposed budget cuts to the Texas Education Agency appropriations total about $135 million.
