Texas Budget May Mean More Money for Public Education
The Texas State Senate is considering expanding the money spent on public education in the Lone Star State.The Texas Senate budget writers were ridiculed for drafting a budget that was considered to lean. Now that are considering spending $1.4 billion dollars more for public schools and another $240 million dollars for mental health issues.
Overall, the senate is too consider adding over $5 billion dollars in proposed spending. Of course, public education spending was slashed in the last legislative session in 2011 during tough economic times in the state.
