Support Texas Education Funding
In Texas, oil and natural gas production is not only fueling jobs and the economy, but is also a significant contributor to the state’s education system.
- Oil and natural gas development generated over $1.1 billion in tax revenue for Texas public schools in 2017.
- Karnes County ISD, located in the middle of the Eagle Ford Shale, received about $30.2 million in tax revenue from oil and gas development in 2017.
- In 2017, oil and gas development provided $32.5 million in tax revenue for Permian Basin’s Midland ISD.
Simply put, energy production has helped make Texas public schools and universities some of the best funded in the nation.
