Proud to be in the Texas House today where we just overwhelmingly passed HB 3, The Texas Plan! House Bill 3 especially benefits rural schools in our district by raising the amount of money allocated for each student from $5,140 to $6,030. This gives districts the ability to earn and keep more money from local property taxes, and updates the critical transportation funding model which has historically been a burden on rural schools. This transformational legislation also gives school districts the funding and the discretion to provide school staff salary increases, which is particularly advantageous to rural school districts that have a harder time filling shortages and attracting teachers. Thank you to Speaker Bonnen and Chairman Huberty for your strong leadership on this bill. #TheTimeIsNow

The Texas House has begun its debate on House Bill 3, The Texas Plan. This bill fundamentally transforms the entire school finance system to accelerate student achievement, prioritize teacher quality, and make available more dollars for the classroom. #TheTimeIsNow
