Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts Susan Combs was the keynote speaker at this month's Midland County Republican Women's luncheon at the Petroleum Club in downtown Midland Wednesday.
Combs -- the chief financial officer for the State of Texas -- talked about last week's elections and the upcoming state legislation session.
"I think we're going to see a good conversation about how we spend money, what do we invest in long term," Combs told Big 2. "We're expected to move about $1.9 billion into the Rainy Day Fund later this month -- which will bring it up to a little over $8 billion."
The Midland County Republican Women also soon install the club's 2013 executive board.
