About Fiscal Notes

Fiscal Notes is one of the ways in which the Comptroller's office strives to assist taxpayers and the people of Texas. The newsletter is a byproduct of the Comptroller's constitutional responsibilities to monitor the state's economy and to estimate state government revenues.

Fiscal Notes also provides a periodic summary of Texas state government's financial statements.

Articles and analysis appearing in Fiscal Notes do not necessarily represent the policy or endorsement of the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts. Space is devoted to a wide variety of topics of Texas interest and general government concern.

Fiscal Notes provides information, original research and balanced analysis on the Texas economy. Subscribe to receive updates in your inbox.
