Texas: HIV Testing on the Chopping Block

January 21, 2011

The state House has unveiled its proposed budget for 2012-13, which includes $31.1 billion in cuts from the current two-year cycle. Lawmakers would spend $156.4 billion in state and federal money under the House draft. Among the proposed cuts, nearly $9 million for HIV/AIDS testing, particularly in Houston and Dallas, would be eliminated. Rep. Jim Pitts (R-Waxahachie), who heads the budget-writing Appropriations Committee, said the draft budget represents "a starting point" and almost certainly will be changed before the session's end in late May.
