In Fort Worth, Wendy Davis Unveils Plan For Texas Economy

Jun 17, 2014

Texas Democratic gubernatorial nominee Wendy Davis says her vision for the state's economy includes major investments in education, roads, water and a wide range of other issues - but won't say how much they cost.

Davis mostly stuck to earlier proposals in a Fort Worth speech Tuesday billed as a major economic address.

She called for implementing full-day pre-Kindergarten statewide, boosting transportation funding and better monitoring state economic programs like the Texas Enterprise Fund.

Davis accused her Republican opponent, Attorney General Greg Abbott, of favoring donors and corporate interests. She said she was the only one in the race "with real-world economic development experience."

Asked about the costs of her plan, Davis said her ideas are a "vision," but that they could be accomplished with existing state revenues.
