Priority Legislation on Calendar
Stephanie Guidry - May 4, 2009 - 2:30 PM
Over the weekend, legislators took an important step towards ensuring that Texas' littlest learners have access to high quality, full-day pre-k programs: House Bill 130 was placed on the General State Calendar. Essentially this action means that the bill, UWT's #1 priority legislation this session, could be up for discussion and a vote on the House floor as early as today.
UWT needs your help to make sure that the bill is heard as quickly as possible. We're asking you to contact your elected Representative TODAY and voice your support for HB 130 and the sound investment of high quality pre-k. The more legislators hear from constituents, the better chance the bill has for being voted out of the House quickly.
UWT has even made it easy for you by creating a Take Action webpage - just click on the link below and send off your e-mail.
