Action Alert: House Bill 3 Voted to House Floor; Still Repeals G/T Allotment

The House Public Education Committee presented and voted out the amended House Bill 3, which still includes the repeal of the G/T allotment (42.156). This bill is a top priority for Speaker Bonnen. House Bill 3 will be on the House floor for a vote on April 3.
There is still time to impact this bill. Please call your State Representative (again) with this message. “Please restore TEC 42.156, the designated funding for G/T students.” There is no minimum, guaranteed funding for G/T students in the current version of HB 3. This student population is a high risk for being overlooked and underserved without specific funding. Make HB3 work for ALL students. Tell them how your student is impacted by this bill.
Remember, the more we can continue to engage in a positive discussion between the Legislature and our community, the bigger the impact we can make.
