+ Lawmakers had two big budget problems to solve this session — a $4
+ billion deficit in the current biennium budget and planning for the
+ 2012-2013 biennium with an estimated $15 billion revenue shortfall. It
+ was a long and confusing process for most, but by the end of the
+ regular session the House and Senate had passed bills to solve the
+ deficit and a budget bill for next biennium. So why are they still at
+ the Capitol battling out how to balance the budget during a special
+ session?
+ </p>
+ <p>
+ We’ve culled The Texas Tribune’s coverage of the budget shortfall and
+ created an interactive time line to link readers back to the major
+ budget developments before and during the regular session.
+ </p>
+ <p>
+ The graphic is color-coded to help readability. Blue stories cover
+ developments in the budget process inside the legislature. Stories
+ specifically related to the Rainy Day Fund are in turquoise. Red
+ stories cover developments outside the lege — like the comptroller’s
+ announcements and The Texas Tribune and University of Texas’ insider
+ polls. There are also a few tidbits in gold from Governor Rick Perry.
+ If you get confused along the way, the green stories provide a clear
+ update of where everything stands. Also look out for the LiveBlog,
+ TribLive and multimedia icons, which indicate special content is
+ available inside the story.
