Texas Senate Approves Billing Fed Over Border

The Texas State Legislature approved SCR 6 on March 13, 2013.

The Senate Resolution proposes to send a bill to the US Federal Government to reimburse Texas for some of the costs incurred by the state in enforcing and securing the international border with Mexico.

If the resolution passes the state House of Representatives, the federal government will have to answer for the $221,600,000 that Texas had to spend in order to perform what, constitutionally, are federal responsibilities.
