Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced he has completed the transfer of about $7.3 billion into the State Highway Fund (SHF) and the Economic Stabilization Fund (ESF; commonly known as the “Rainy Day Fund”). Each fund received nearly $3.64 billion, or 50 percent of the total transfer. With this most recent transfer, the new balance will be about $14.1 billion, not accounting for currently outstanding spending authority of approximately $872.1 million. The balance in the ESF will change as agencies spend down this remaining appropriation authority and investment earnings are realized.
