Description: Letter from Truett Latimer to Bonnie Patterson discussing a proposed budget increase for the Abilene State Hospital and raises for state employees. Latimer, who is a member of the Appropriations Committee, writes that he is hopeful they can give the hospital an increased appropriation but they will likely not get everything they asked for since requests from other state agencies and organizations exceed expected revenue. He also mentions that the legislature has given state employees a raise during the past two sessions and he is confident they will do so again.
