WESLACO, Texas – It’s been another good month for sales tax revenue collections in the Rio Grande Valley, Matt Ruszczak has announced.

The executive director of Rio South Texas Economic Council analyzes data provided by the Texas Comptroller’s Office. Ruszczak’s most recent analysis covers the March, 2021, report from the Comptroller’s Office, which looks at sales tax collections for January, 2021.

“I’m a real broken record, because once again it’s another month and I once again have really great news to share with the audience,” Ruszczak said. “That is obviously a good problem to have.”

Ruszczak’s take on the January numbers is contained in this Zoom conversation with Rio Grande Guardian editor Steve Taylor:
