Superintendent John O’Brien stated, “What a privilege it was today to have Speaker Bonnen visit our new construction and speak with staff about HB 3. HB 3 is a sweeping and historic school finance bill. It was passed by the 86th Texas Legislature this year and was signed by Governor Greg Abbott. This bill provides more money for Texas public school classrooms, increases teacher compensation, reduces recapture and cuts local property taxes for Texas taxpayers. HB 3 is one of the most transformative Texas education bills in recent history. We are so grateful to Speaker Bonnen for stopping by today, and also leading the charge for our Texas students, educators and taxpayers.”
Thank you Speaker Bonnen!
