House Votes to Approve State Budget – Votes to Keep Vouchers Out

After several hours of debate, the Texas House of Representatives approved a $106.8 billion budget at the end of last week in a vote of 129-18. Not included in the bill: vouchers. House lawmakers voted overwhelmingly Thursday afternoon to prohibit the state from funding programs that divert money from public schools and into private institutions.

To read more about the budget, check out this post by the Texas Tribune.

PTA Members Made a Difference!
Thank YOU for using your voice to back the future of Texas children and ensure public funds are used for public schools, not vouchers!
