Texas Freedom Network Statement on Passage of Permanent School Fund Measures

TFN President Hails Passage of HJR 77, HB 2037

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 27, 2009

Texas Freedom Network President Kathy Miller is releasing the following statement following House passage of HJR 77 and HB 2037, measures that would shift authority over the Permanent School Fund to an appointed Permanent School Fund Management Council. The measures were authored by state Rep. Donna Howard, D-Austin.

 

“This was an overwhelming, bipartisan vote for competence and common sense. Taxpayers have a right to expect that people who manage billions of their dollars for our kids’ education actually know what they’re doing. We hope the Senate will join the House in approving these critical measures for transparency and responsibility.”

 

Both measures now go to the Senate. If HJR 77 passes the Senate, voters must approve the constitutional amendment.
