Texas tourism leaders decry cuts to state tourism fund
from San Antonio Express-News
Texas lawmakers slashed funds this legislative session intended to promote the Lone Star State as a destination for domestic and international travelers — a move tourism officials say could severely dampen the state's economy and put jobs at risk. Lawmakers in Austin cut the state's tourism funds in half — from a budget of $67.7 million in 2015 to $34 million to market Texas as a travel destination and conduct research about the state’s tourism economy during the next two years.
