The Texas Legislature must make a decision by Wednesday of this week if we are to pick up some of our lost state funding. We have a school funding bill that has passed the House, but not yet the Senate. The House has taken the lead in restoring funding to our school district. Now, it is in our best interest for the House to seek a compromise with the Senate. Today, I am calling the elected officials listed below and sharing this message:
"Thank you for your strong support of public education. We appreciate the intent of HB 21, and now we need you to seek a compromise with the Senate so our state funding is secured before our students arrive in our classrooms next week."
Elected officials to call:
Speaker of the House Joe Straus
Representative Dan Huberty
Chair of the House Public Education Committee
Representative Jodie Laubenberg
Representative Scott Sanford
Representative Matt Shaheen
Please join me in contacting the elected officials listed above.
Thank you for your continued support of Lovejoy ISD.
