Statement from Senator Judith Zaffirini Regarding School Finance Ruling

"Judge Dietz's ruling today that Texas' school finance system is unconstitutional is no surprise. The system is broken, and our children deserve a permanent solution to the problem. Now is the time to work swiftly and purposefully to arrive at a school finance solution that is fair and equitable for all Texas children.

"Today's decision also reflects the need to fund our public schools more adequately and fairly. To remedy the situation immediately, legislators should restore the $5 billion cuts from public education in 2011.

"I voted against the appropriations bill last session, largely because it didn't reflect our best effort. This year's budget should be better for education and for health and human services."

Yes Judy lets definately throw more money at the problem. That is an entirely new idea. Congratulations! How about developing a plan to replace property tax with a sales tax to fund a voucher program for all school children?... More ›
