Major Texas school finance fix set to clear state House

Danilo Martir | 21 Abril, 2017, 01:57

In addition, it would ban all public buildings and school districts from enacting or enforcing any gender affirming protection not abiding with state law.

House Speaker Joe Straus has spoken out against so-called bathroom bills. He also said this is the first time in more than 30 years that the Texas Legislature has the chance to fix the school finance system. Seliger changed the bill to give more freedom to institutions and support students at underprivileged schools. This bill doesn't keep students safe.

"And that child suffered", Edwards says with her voice breaking, "like so numerous patients that we've heard from in committees over the years".

Chris Wallace, president of the Texas Association of Business, a group that's fought HB 2899 and its stringent Texas Senate counterpart, Senate Bill 6, told the committee about the threats he feels bathroom legislation poses to the businesses he represents.

The U.S.is trying to ratchet up pressure on North Korea to abandon its n. But it was now "proceeding to the Western Pacific as ordered", it said.

Sen. Bill Wielechowski, D-Anchorage, was among six senators who tried to insert the local mandate into the bill on Tuesday. Drew Darby, R-San Angelo, would remove an existing financial penalty for school districts smaller than 300 square miles, which was originally meant to encourage them to consolidate. HB21 increases the basic allotment given per student in lieu of a transportation allotment.

Under the version of the bill that cleared the Senate, however, the mandate was absent and only state workers would be guaranteed to receive the benefit.

Legislators voted 86-59 to approve Darby's amendment, despite Huberty's opposition.

It remains to be seen if policymakers actually compromise on the proposal this year, or if it will fall by the wayside yet again as the state's $2.7 billion budget gap consumes the spotlight.

He said the judge has the power to end the discriminatory practice, but the state would determine how it would fix the disparity. Purvis dismissed the district's claims of discrimination.

The Oklahoma House has passed legislation to repeal the trigger that would lead to a cut in the state's individual income tax rate. That's half of the more than $400 million that districts now receive through the expiring program. Aycock really set the thing in motion last session.

"This is a very complicated issue and I understand the significance of your decision making here, but I would ask that you err on the side of safety of our children", said a representative of Protect Life and Marriage.

A bill aimed at scaling back the number of standardized tests administered has passed its final Senate committee but not before picking up amendments dealing with recess and other education issues. Parents and educators who testified wanted a few new provisions added in.

The House Public Education Committee voted 10-1 to approve Chairman Dan Huberty's school finance bill, which would mean gains for most, but major losses for some.
