Bill Aims To Expand Teacher Workforce Program To High School Students—Pls Make Calls
Our Monday press conference on our Grow Your Own Educator bill went really well. Many thanks to Steffi Lee of KXAN for covering it.
Friends, I urge you to place a quick call to whoever represents you in support of House Bill 3893 and companion Senate Bill 2425 so that we can get a hearing.
House Bill 3893 has gotten referred to the Higher Education Committee in the House. Calls to Chair Chris Turner at (512) 463-0574 would also be most helpful.
On the Senate side, Senate Bill 2425 got referred to the Senate Committee on Higher Education. Calls to Chair Brandon Creighton at (512) 463-0104 would be very helpful.
Again, ask for the bill to get heard and let's get these bills moving!
