The oil and gas severance tax is estimated to be over $6 billion, with 37.5 percent going to the State Highway Fund, 37.5 percent to the Rainy Day Fund and 25 percent to the Foundation School Fund.

"We are seeing people doing the wrong thing; we are seeing people lying and we are seeing deliberate deception, all led by the GOP administration and supported by our statewide elected officials. This is not the Texas way and I think folks have had enough.” McAllen said. "I think Texans are better than that."
