Question Description

Texas Government Common Assignment Critical Thinking Component 1. Compare the budget of the state of Texas and the budget of the state of Massachusetts. How are the states similar in how they spend money and how are the states different? How would you expect life to be different in Massachusetts compared to Texas based on how the governments spend their money? Base your arguments on the multiple sources provided and not your own “guess.” (CT 1 and CT2) 2. Life in Texas and Massachusetts can be very different, but that does not make one superior to the other. Which state is more suitable to live in is determined by how one defines a “quality” life. What factors do believe would lead to a high quality of life? How you rate different life factors can be your opinion, but the factors you use should be based on research. How do you think living in Texas, and spending by the Texas state government, influence your perspective on what is a “quality” life? (CT 3 and CT 4) 3. Looking back at spending by the states of Texas and Massachusetts what would happen if each state changed its spending priorities. How would you expect altering state spending would harm or enhance the quality of life for people living in that state? Be sure to mention specific spending changes and base your argument on how you would define quality of life. (CT 5) Texas Government Common Assignment Visual Literacy Component 1.

1. Compare the budget of the state of Texas and the budget of the state of Massachusetts.
Government budgets play a critical role in determining the nature of resources available
in a particular region. Most importantly, the allocation of funds to different sectors within an
economy is based on the availability of certain resources that could help address the issues
experienced by the economy in question. Therefore, the budget allocation in Texas and
Massachusetts could play a critical role in determining the facilities available in the different
