Governor Perry announces special session topics

The topics in the Proclamation just issued by the Governor are:

  • Legislation relating to fiscal matters necessary for the implementation of House Bill No. 1 as passed by the 82nd Legislature, Regular Session, including measures that will allow school districts to operate more efficiently. 
  • Legislation relating to healthcare cost containment, access to services through managed care, and the creation of economic and structural incentives to improve the quality of Medicaid services.

The section the references “measures that allow school district to operate more efficiently” address the concern we had in our earlier email regarding all the anti-teacher legislation in HB 400 and SB 12. I realize than many of you are in the last week of school, but we need everyone ready to respond quickly to whatever emerges this week. We will continue to provide daily updates and alerts as are they are needed.
