House Bill 130, dealing with Full-Day Public Pre-kindergaten, passed with a majority vote yesterday. Before the Bill is sent to the Texas Senate, it will be read an additional time in the Texas House of Representatives. This is important because it gives those Senators that opposed the bill the opportunity to significantly alter the bill language. Individuals interested in supporting the bill’s integrity and intentions should call or email their representatives.
