the complex None of the recent proposals have addressed the bonded indebtedness of the local school Whos going to pick up the tab and pay off the debt The proposal was completed too late for the special session and is expected to be introduced in the new 73rd legislature as soon as The groups proposal would recapture local taxes equal to percent of state and local tax funds at the statewide

something this I feel confident we will come up with something and I really dont believe that there is a risk of Texas schools being shut The risk this time is whether or not we will give in to political expediency and simply patch things Weve been patching this thing for four years and the patches arent Ive heard there are a couple of plans out said They may take a combination of them and
