Senators reject proposal to cut taxes in road-funding bill

The proposal has been praised by education groups and parent groups who say the legislation is much-needed to crack down on excessive testing in the Sunshine State.

Now it appears Diaz will get to have his cake and eat it too as HB 549 moves through the House and becomes more comparable with the Senate's testing bill, SB 926.

The House leadership has appeared to be more open to keeping noncritical bills moving, though Wednesday a slew of meetings and bill hearings in the House were canceled. In addition, it would ban all public buildings and school districts from enacting or enforcing any gender affirming protection not abiding with state law. That provision was removed at the request of Rep. Shevrin Jones, the committee's ranking Democrat.

The committee will review the bill and can offer amendments. Drew Darby, R-San Angelo, would remove an existing financial penalty for school districts smaller than 300 square miles, which was originally meant to encourage them to consolidate.

Under the Senate proposal, the local cities and municipalities could opt into the program or create their own.

Texas has no state income tax, meaning schools rely heavily on local property tax revenue.

Supporters of the bill have said the measure targets "abusive" lawsuits while protecting consumers' right to sue their insurance company if it acts unfairly or in bad faith.

The Texas Senate has approved a bill that would allow home-schooled students to participate in public school sports and other activities.

As lawmakers debate possible reforms to the school finance system this week, they might decide whether to continue offering extra money to districts like Texas City ISD, which a year ago was forced to annex a struggling district next to it.
