Texas Budget Shortfall

Texas - State agencies in Texas are bracing for yet another round of cuts.

Republican leaders are ordering most agencies to immediately implement reductions designed to cover the $18 billion budget shortfall.

Officials hope to save $1.2 billion with the move. In January, five percent cuts were ordered across the board.

Certain programs involving Homeland Security, job training ad emergency health care are exempt from the reductions.
