Texas governor Rick Perry said on June 16, 2003 that the 118 billion dollar two-year budget bill approved in the month by lawmakers will expire if he does not receive a certified copy of the budget from comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn by June 22, 2003. Perry's announcement comes soon after a press conference held by Strayhorn in which the comptroller stated there is no constitutional deadline for her to certify the state's budget. If Perry's team is correct, and if Strayhorn does not certify the budget before June 22, 2003, lawmakers would have to approve a second budget bill before the end of the current fiscal year on August 31, 2003.
