.@TexasTribune aggregates TX Public #HigherEd sports spending.

TLDR: NCAA Athletics are a net (financial) drain on Students/Taxpayers/TX
Source for Figures: college-sports.texastribune.org
My spreadsheet with 2014-15 & 2015-16 data

Major difference between UT & A&M revenue looks to be "contributions"
UT on the left, A&M on the right
Also noteworthy, UT spends almost twice as much on Admin/Support staff salaries
Why yes, they do have a budget line item just for Golden Parachutes!
This report seems to indicate UT DOES send money back to the academic portion of the public university whereas A&M does NOT
Also, look at that outstanding facilties debt!!!

Guess who is on the hook if athletics stops performing?

Not quite a #PonziScheme, almost
Money lost per student is highest, $1,375, at @utep. cc: @UTEP_Prospector

Median lost is $610, PER STUDENT

At Planning Commission to discuss the importance of transit-supportive density as well as oppose small area neighborhood plans. Specifically, the North Shoal Creek NP.
Commissioner Connor Kenny inquiring to the staff about the neighborhood planning process.

Asking about who showed up to the community engagement events.

-older single-family homeowners were overwhelmingly represented but almost no renters
Staff: we decided to not upzone these to transition zoning.

Also acknowledging that majority of population is renters. (despite them not being present at community engagement)

Remember, the productive urban areas, cities, support the very same suburbanites and rural people that decry cities.
.@DeLunaEva ever seen a map or graphic of Texas tax revenue (versus outlays) by county or zip code?

It's my hunch that the cities are heavily subsidizing rural and suburban interests at the State level. I mean, this clearly happens w/TXDOT highway projects.
