Legislative Alert!!
Senate Education Committee Votes Out Voucher Bill 7-3 Citing Enrollment Growth as a Problem It Will Solve!

No surprise that Senate Ed has voted out Sen. Larry Taylor's voucher bill this morning, but can you believe that one reason given by Sen. Van Taylor for supporting the bill is that this will help the serious problem of fast student growth and overcrowded schools. REALLY?

A full 80% of all the new student growth in Texas enrolls in our 75 fast growth destination school districts with Prosper being among the fastest. So those families move to our districts to receive a voucher?

Instead of funding more than just 7% of public school facility needs and providing needed property tax relief to taxpayers, the solution is to divert over $300 million away from public schools to fund this voucher bill? Yes, the bill has an over $300 million fiscal note and will do NOTHING to relieve fast growth districts.

This logic is outrageous and fast growth districts are not the excuse for pursuing vouchers in our state. Please contact your senator now! They all need to hear from us that this is beyond ridiculous and could have a devastating impact on our already exploding school district.

Senator Craig Estes (512) 463-0130 craig.estes@senate.state.tx.us

Senator Van Taylor (512) 463-0108 van.taylor@senate.state.tx.us

*Prosper ISD opposes this bill because it does not allow us the “right of refusal” – meaning anyone living outside the district would be able to attend without any restriction.
