DART's Sales Tax Revenues: A Review and Outlook

DART's Sales Tax Revenues: A Review and Outlook

Date: November 2004
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report discusses the DART systems' sales tax revenues. In addition to the fare box, DART's operations are funded through a one percent sales tax levied by member cities on all retail transactions as permitted by state law. During the 1990s, DART's sales tax receipts grew at a healthy clip. But between 2001 and 2003, taxable sales in the DART service area declined. By contrast, for many non-DART suburban cities, taxable sales continued to expand during the 2001-2003 period. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, looks at three possible explanations for these trends.

An Overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area's Long-Term Water and Transportation Needs

An Overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area's Long-Term Water and Transportation Needs

Date: March 2004
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report gives an overview of the Dallas-Fort Worth area's long-term water and transportation needs. Recognizing the importance of a reliable long-term water supply, the Dallas/Fort Worth region has invested heavily in reservoirs and transmission facilities over the past 50 years. Indeed, the dramatic population and employment growth enjoyed by the Metroplex over the past several decades would not have occurred absent an abundant and reliable supply of fresh water for residential and commercial uses. Despite the foresightedness of the region's leaders, according to the Texas Water Development Board the region may soon find itself facing a water deficit. This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, examines the implications of the DFW area's long-term water and transportation needs.

The Impact of Higher Natural Gas Prices on the Texas Economy

The Impact of Higher Natural Gas Prices on the Texas Economy

Date: July 2000
Creator: Weinstein, Bernard L. & Clower, Terry L.
Description: This report, by the University of North Texas Center for Economic Development and Research, discusses the economic effect of rising gas prices on the Texas economy. It surmises that although rising natural gas prices are a boon to gas drilling, production and distribution industries and their employees, the resulting higher costs to Texas industries and households more than offset any gains. Each $1 per MCF increase in the price of natural gas - if sustained - has the net effect of decreasing state economic activity by at least $3.4 billion per year, lowering total employment by more than 34,000, and reducing salaries and wages by $911 million.
