Wow. Those are pretty incredible numbers. If only the rest of the US was doing that well. Don't know if it is good economic policy or high oil prices - the job growth seems to be in what the government classifies as 'mining and logging'. Texas Economy at a Glance

Wait until someone says we have 25 billion dollars state deficit.

I hope that can get fixed soon.

Other than that, great news for us Texans.

That's interesting - according to almost every recent analysis Texas has some of the highest poverty rates, low-end minimum wage job growth, & uninsured residents in the Nation.

PolitiFact Texas | Texas has the highest proportion of workers earning minimum wage or less

Normal, the state is invaded by low-skilled immigrants who can't pay an insurance and have well-paid jobs.
