This report is a response to the requirements of Sec. 403.359 of House Bill 1935 (81st Legislature, Regular Session), which directed the Comptroller to study the feasibility of basing a portion of all public postsecondary technical training program funding on the economic benefit of the program to the state.

In addition to determining the economic benefit of a postsecondary program, HB 1935 also directed the Comptroller to estimate the “additional tax revenue generated by employers that results from the ability of public junior colleges, public state colleges, or public technical institutes to prepare students for employment fields for which there is employer demand.”

Comptroller staff, with assistance and data from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Texas Workforce Commission, has estimated the additional tax revenue generated by public community, junior and technical college graduates.
