Too many Texas schoolchildren are trapped in failing schools – it’s time to change that.
Last week I joined other lawmakers and many Texans on the steps of the Capitol for the Texas School Choice Rally. I believe every child in Texas should have access to a high-quality public education, and I was proud to speak about what the Texas Senate will do this session to make this become a reality.
I joined Senator Larry Taylor, R – Friendswood, yesterday to announce the filing of Senate Bill 3 – School Choice. Watch and share my statement below.
Additional Conservative Priorities in the Texas Legislature
I joined Senator Van Taylor, R-Plano, on Thursday morning for the filing of Senate Bill 14 – Ethics Reform. Ethics reform is one of my top priorities so that government – at all levels – can continue to inspire the public’s trust in a transparent and ethically principled manner. Senate Bill 14 is an important bill that will strengthen Texas ethics laws. Watch and share my video on SB 14 – Ethics Reform here.
This legislative session, Texas is going to continue to improve our workforce and prepare students to be successful in today’s competitive and rapidly changing economy. Last week Senate Education Chair Larry Taylor, R – Friendswood, filed Senate Bill 22 – P-TECH. Senate Bill 22 is built on a partnership between school districts, higher education institutions and business employers. Read my full statement on Senate Bill 22 here.
This week in the Texas Legislature
We look forward to coming together for Governor Abbott’s State of the State address today where he will outline his priorities and emergency items for the 85th Legislative Session. Follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to stay updated on our conservative priorities.
Thank you for supporting our fight to expand and preserve the conservative values Texas was built on.
