Ladies and Gentlemen:

We are pleased to announce the publication of Texas State Expenditures by County 2013. Our office annually reports the state’s expenditures by county for the previous fiscal year. This report assists more than 195 state agencies with required electronic reporting of state expenditures by county under Government Code, Chapter 2054.126 (d), Posting of Information on the Internet.

Texas State Expenditures by County 2013 shows where state dollars were spent, listing state expenditures by agency and type of expenditure in each county and for the 24 council of governments regions. The introduction explains the estimation method and lists the major categories of expenditures.

This document was created using information from the state’s Uniform Statewide Accounting System. The report reflects actual net expenditures of funds from accounts held in the State Treasury during the 2013 fiscal year, Sept. 1, 2012 through Aug. 31, 2013. For certain expenditures, the Comptroller’s office used information provided by individual state agencies to estimate their distributions to counties.
