SB 1: TPPA Changing Vote Recommendation to NEUTRAL
Posted April 04, 2013 by Nathanael Ferguson

Due to House passage of several highly objectionable amendments to SB 1 today we are withdrawing our support from this legislation and changing our vote recommendation to NEUTRAL. An amendment to authorize the expansion of Medicaid, as well as an amendment to keep kids in failing schools by preventing the funding for some of the options for school choice, constitute a significant blow to liberty in Texas.
