KR: Texas Senate narrative emerges on school finance debate

Sen. Perry argues that if local debt is taken out of the equation, the state’s share of education funding is closer to 50 percent; others say “Homeowners in rapidly growing communities will continue to pay higher property taxes unless and until our state leaders step up funding of public school facilities and public education in general."
