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.
