Texas Comptroller Susan Combs has announced a new web portal that will provide information on the economic impact of military installations in the state.
The portal, located at www.TheTexasEconomy.org/military, will highlight the many ways the state and local communities support military activities and families, as well as examples of how military activities in Texas spur economic development and innovation.
According to the Comptroller’s analysis, Texas military installations provide an economic impact of nearly $150 billion to the Texas economy. They account for 6 percent of the state’s economic activities. And, they employ more than 255,000 military and defense-related civilian personnel.
