*Proposition 7, approved by voters in November 2015, amended the Texas Constitution to dedicate, beginning in fiscal 2018, up to $2.5 billion in annual sales tax revenues to the State Highway Fund (SHF), thereby reducing the estimated amount of sales tax in the General Revenue Fund in the 2018-19 biennium. In fiscal 2019, $2.25 billion is forecast to be transferred in August, after the $28 billion threshold is reached in July, bringing total transfers of sales tax revenue to the SHF in 2018-2019 to $4.75 billion, with the remaining $250 million to be transferred in September 2019, the first month of fiscal 2020.
