This series of practical workshops, developed by the Texas Association of Counties and the V.G. Young Institute of County Government, is designed to provide an in-depth and concentrated learning experience on the key issues associated with the new budgeting process. Each workshop will provide an overview of Senate Bill 2, including the newly adopted terminology, important timelines of which counties need to be aware, and the components that will be used to calculate a county's tax rate. It will also cover effective strategies and best practices for implementing these changes.

Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the impact that SB 2 made to the county budgeting process and how to incorporate those changes in 2020.

There is no cost to attend these workshops.
