Give the surplus back to taxpayers

Thanks to the strong Texas economy, fiscal responsibility by state leaders (e.g. Perry), and a (perhaps in retrospect unnecessary) business franchise tax expansion that will bring in $11 billion, the comptroller is projecting a $14 billion surplus. What to do with Texas-sized surplus? Texans for Fiscal Responsibility say "return the money back to the taxpayers." Good answer; we'll see if the lege agrees.
