Online and blended learning is a significant part of education's future, and while I have concerns that House Bill No. 1926 might impact full-time online learning, it does broaden opportunities for students to engage in technology-based learning. Therefore, I am allowing this to become law without my signature. Hopefully, future legislators will work to ensure continued expansion of online learning and student choice.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have signed my name officially and caused the Seal of the State to be affixed hereto at Austin, this 17th day of June, 2011.

RICK PERRY
Governor of Texas
