A Texas budget of sorts with $$ for water and schools is slouching toward Gomorrah

Reportedly, there's a deal for both water fund money and more schools money out of the Rainy Day Fund. Dunno whether it's enough or not to satisfy Democrats.

The numbers are $2 bil for water and $3.2 bil for education.

Yeah, it's not full restoration, but it's a solid half-loaf. Might be worth it, if it heads off a special session and the cans of worms that might open.

That's my .02, at least. Given the history of special sessions with Gov. Helmethair and the helm, even before Tea Party Squared gained a foothold this year, it just seems better to avoid clusterfucks when possible.
