On April 5th, the International Bank of Commerce hosted “Conversations of Texas”, a breakfast series throughout the 2023 Legislative Session.
This event featured State Comptroller Glenn Hegar who spoke with community stakeholders about how Texas will potentially spend the state’s budget surplus of $32.7B.
His remarks put this opportunity into context as historical, unprecedented, and once in a lifetime, and is the result of several favorable dynamics over the last two years.
Mr. Hegar explained the various options and priorities that will end up shaping the policy that will be developed by the state’s legislators.
The event was opened by Mr. Dennis Nixon, CEO of IBC Bank, and was well attended by business and government leaders in Laredo as well as LEDC President and CEO.
