Uresti Out Of Legislative Budget Board

San Antonio State Senator Carlos Uresti won’t be serving on the Legislative Budget Board.

He was quietly removed from the high-profile panel last month by Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick.

The board makes budget recommendations to the legislature, and Uresti was the only Democrat on the roster.

He’s being replaced by Republican Senator Kelly Hancock of North Richland Hills.
