When the House Select Committee on Educational Opportunity & Enrichment convenes at 9 a.m., Friday, November 10, it will hear testimony only on a bill and a resolution related to school safety.
Originally, both the committee’s November 9 and 10 hearings were reserved for testimony on HB 1. However, the updated notice for Friday’s hearing states: “If the Select Committee does not complete consideration of HB 1 during its November 9 public hearing, the Select Committee will conclude its consideration. No further public testimony will be taken.”
The bill and resolution to be considered Friday are:
- HB 2 (Ken King) establishes a school safety grant program and a school safety plan implementation grant program. It also allocates certain constitutional transfers of money to the state school safety fund, the economic stabilization fund, and the state highway fund.
- HJR 1 (Ken King) proposes a constitutional amendment that would create the state school safety fund to provide ongoing financial support for projects that ensure the safety of Texas public schools and provide for the transfer of certain general revenues to that fund, the economic stabilization fund, and the state highway fund.
