Sen. Bettencourt leads work group effort to price out new education spending

Sen. Bettencourt says the group will thoroughly review Gov. Abbott’s revenue cap proposal, as well as look at the cost of the Equity Center’s school finance fix and even some yet-to-be-formulated proposal to wean the state off of recapture

The work group led by Sen. Paul Bettencourt, R-Houston, on revenue will begin to price out proposals – in the categories of both best practice instructional programs and school finance fixes – as the Commission on Public School Finance goes into the summer months.

The timeline for the Commission on Public School Finance’s final report continues to slide toward the end of the year. This past week, the commission heard some of its last testimony on best practices. It now appears most of the commission’s work may be done in its three working groups, which are sifting through recommendations they intend to bring back to the commission for a final vote.
