Senate approves budget cutting $4 billion from public ed

On a straight party vote, the state Senate on Wednesday approved a budget cutting $4 billion from the public schools. The House budget would slash $8 billion from public education.
TSTA President Rita Haecker, in a statement issued to the media, urgedTexans to flood the governor’s and legislative offices with calls and emails, demanding that the budget conferees, “throw both bills into the trash and start over.”
