Subject: Texas Budget and Abortion
Here is the link to the 1999 budget. http://www.lbb.state.tx.us/Bill_76/Bill-76-5_Final_0599.pdf
On page II-36 you will find the following rider:
Prohibition on Abortions. It is the intent of the Legislature that no state funds appropriated
under Strategy D.1.2. may be used to pay the direct or indirect costs of abortion procedures
provided by contractors of the Department. The Department shall include in its audit a review
of the use of state funds to ensure compliance with this section.
In that year the state budgeted 65,472,000 for FY2000 and 63,601,958 for FY2001. See page II-26.
I hope this helps.-Elizabeth
