Sunday, June 16th, is the last day Gov. Rick Perry can veto bills, which passed during the 83rd (2013) legislative session.

The Governor signed HB 5, the education bill which -- among other things -- limited the number of “high stakes” tests kids must take and graduation requirements, opening the door to more vocational and technical education options.

The legislation which allows for more charter schools in Texas -- SB 2 -- is legislation we are eager to have the Governor sign. Charter schools are a public school choice option for parents and Texas has 101,000 students on wait lists for charter schools. Read more about SB 2.

We have asked the Governor to veto HB 1675, which moves the Sunset review of the Regional Education Service Centers back four years to 2019. The ESC’s have betrayed the public trust by creating a non-profit to shield them from open meetings and public information requests regarding the controversial CSCOPE curriculum. They dropped CSCOPE in exchange for delaying Sunset -- but this is not a deal the public made.

We also asked the Governor to sign SB 1604, the CSCOPE review legislation (because we do not trust the ESC’s to remove CSCOPE from the schools...) After all, the ESC’s have betrayed the public trust in the manner they introduced CSCOPE, not just in the lesson plans. Read more about CSCOPE.

Call the Governor's Office 800-843-5789 or 512-463-2000
Encourage him to VETO HB 1675!

Gov. Perry has vetoed two bills at the time this email was prepared. You can follow his vetoes on his website: http://governor.state.tx.us/news/bills/.

Gov. Perry is not adverse to vetoing bills. In 2001, he vetoed 82 bills!
