*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.

For 2018, the amount dedicated for the SHF is estimated at $2.31 billion; as the $28 billion threshold is not forecast to be reached until after August 1, 2018, the amount due to the SHF for that year will be transferred in September 2018, the first month of fiscal 2019.

Another $920 million is forecast to be transferred in August 2019, after the $28 billion threshold for fiscal 2019 is reached in July 2019, bringing total transfers of sales tax revenue to the SHF in fiscal 2019 to $3.23 billion.
