This page focuses on major biennial appropriations bills passed by the Texas Legislature. Beginning with the 52nd Regular Session, the Legislature has usually passed a single General Appropriations Act at each regular session. Prior to the 52nd Legislature, multiple bills were used to make biennial appropriations.

This page is not a comprehensive list of all appropriations bills passed by the legislature. Bills making emergency, supplemental and deficiency appropriations are not included, nor are bills appropriating money to pay claims against the state, making appropriations from the Legislature's Contingent Expense Fund, or making small, one-time appropriations to specific agencies or programs. For information on these types of appropriations, consult the General and Special Laws of Texas
