Is Bigger Better?
News Story  August 5, 1999, by Erica C. Barnett

Security in State Jobs
News Story  May 20, 1999, by Erica C. Barnett
"...Although legislators granted a much-needed pay raise for state workers and UT staff, it's important to note that nothing in the current budget provides for the long-term funding increases that UT would need to bring low-wage staff up to the Austin market level. And it seems safe to assume that the comptroller's budgetary largesse, and the booming state economy, will not last forever, which means that UT wages are likely to continue to fall behind without the benefit of serious structural change from within the university...."

Are County Bond Proposals Good for the Long Haul?
News Story  October 17, 1997, by Nate Blakeslee
"...illustration by Jason Stout Driving west out of Austin, it used to be easy enough to tell when you had reached unincorporated Travis County -- the road narrowed to the two-lane farm-to-market variety, white-tail deer and buzzards became the dominant social groups (though they never voted as a bloc), and, of course, you encountered the wavy sea of limestone and cedar trees and the unmistakable smell of the Hill Country breeze blowing through your unbattened hatches. These days, determining whether you're on a county road or a city road -- as you head, for example, out Anderson Mill Road or FM620 -- is more a matter of determining when the endless succession of subdivisions and strip malls switches from incorporated sprawl to unincorporated sprawl, which is no easy task (especially if you're still going by the smell of the breeze)..."

"...The debate over whether to sell the utility, as was the debate over whether to give up on the public hospital, is taking place behind the scenes, and on Wednesday work sessions. Mayor Bruce Todd's latest pet project (by the way, all of them seem to include privatizing public institutions, and this one is no exception), took one step closer to reality Wednesday with a presentation by Price Waterhouse consultants on the competitive position and value of the city's electric utility. The consultants "reiterated" their recommendation that the city solicit offers to buy the utility and compare the offers to the "risks and benefits of continuing to operate its electric utility in a deregulated market."..."

TCAD can't accurately appraise commercial properties – and the Lege likes it that way
News Column  May 21, 2015, by Michael King
"...The focus of Murrin's group is the inequity between residential and commercial appraisals; in brief, Real Values contends that for various reasons, commercial property in Texas is taxed at about 40% less than the constitutional standard of "market value," while homeowners' appraisals are much closer to 100%, meaning they bear an inequitable portion of the overall tax burden. The forum occurred on the same day the city released a report City Council commissioned last year to review commercial appraisals, and it turns out that (at least for Austin), Real Values is underestimating the problem...."

News Story  October 28, 2011, by Jordan Smith
"...When Democratic lawmakers tried in 2009 to attach a medically accurate sex-education provision to a bill on the House floor, Perry's allies rallied to kill the measure. In mid May 2009, the Plano-based Free Market Foundation (now the Liberty Institute) sent out a "TRULY URGENT" email alert to supporters, warning that the medically accurate sex-education provision was a ruse by Planned Parenthood and the Texas Freedom Network to "steal your children's sexual purity from them."
