About Fiscal Notes

FISCAL NOTES is one of the ways the Comptroller’s office strives to assist taxpayers and the people of Texas. The newsletter is a by-product of the Comptroller's constitutional responsibilities to monitor the state’s economy and to estimate state government revenues.

FISCAL NOTES also provides a monthly summary of the financial statements for the state of Texas.

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 is not copyrighted and may be reproduced. The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts would appreciate credit for material used and a copy of the reprint.
