@csmyth18,
Do you have a definition for "public matching funds", because I don't know what you are trying to ask. Perhaps you could provide a sentence that actually used those three words together?

@glitterbag,
I believe they are when the government matches the funds the campaign raises (and gives the money to the campaign) but in return for a limit on spending.

@csmyth18,
Are you referring to political campaigns or non profit donation campaigns or matching of dollars for Federal programs such as CHip?

@csmyth18,
This op-ed would seem to indicate there is no such thing as public funding of political campaigns in Texas.

Here is a link to the Texas Election code:

There is not an obvious mention of any public funding.

Public matching funds are designed to enhance the value of small efforts from individuals, making people less reliant on large additions and supporting people who do not have accessibility to large moneyed resources. The general objective of matching funds is to decrease the role of funds in politics and to assist make elections much more aggressive.

Public matching funds are contribution of money from individuals, which enables people less dependent on large contributions and helping candidates who do not have access to money. And you can search there availability in Texas on the internet.
