Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement today upon the Texas Senate's passage of CSHB2.
"I applaud Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and the Texas Senate for demonstrating a strong commitment to education reform by passing legislation that will improve teacher pay, put more money in the classroom, and bring greater accountability and reform to Texas schools. I look forward to working with the House and Senate conferees so they can send me an education reform bill that will give schoolchildren and teachers the resources they deserve and need."
