Urgent: Stop the New Texas Voucher Bill

Published by

Please drop what you are doing and pick up the phone! We have just learned that SB 1716, a special education voucher bill, will likely come before the House Public Education Committee later today without a public hearing. 

We have seen several voucher bills get through in other states using such underhanded tactics.  

Please pick up the phone and call these members today!!  Here is a script you can use.

I am calling to express my strong opposition to Senate Bill 1716, which would start a special education voucher program. Public money should be spent on public schools, not unaccountable private schools.  Please ask the representative not to vote SB 1716 out of committee. Thank you.
