Welcome to the Second Edition of this Special Session's Capitol Report.
Texas Medical Board Sunset Legislation - The House and the Senate have both passed SB 20 and SB 60. These bills are most important piece of legislation added to Governor Abbott's call which allow the state to continue to certify our doctors and ensure critical support agencies of the Texas Medical Board will continue beyond September of this year.
Public Education Finance Reform - The Texas House has passed 4 bills that aim to put $2 billion into our Texas public schools and provide true reform to the school system. Ending Robin Hood is a top priority for Rep. Villalba during the special session. Representing DISD and RISD in the legislature, he knows that school finance reform is necessary to ensure the continued success of public schools across the State of Texas.
