Huberty Won’t Give Up on School Finance Reform

Rep. Dan Huberty, chair of the House Public Education Committee, plans to file a bill to reform public school finance in the upcoming special session. He also reiterated that school choice is dead in the Texas House.

In the regular session, the House voted overwhelmingly in favor of a school finance reform bill that would have increased the state’s contribution to public schools by $1.5 billion, only to kill the bill later when the Senate added a school choice amendment.
