Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on School Finance

Thursday, May 06, 2004  •  Press Release

AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement today regarding the Senate's action on school finance.

"Funding our children's education and providing real relief for property taxpayers are vital to the future of Texas, and I encourage members of the legislature to take the time they need to address this issue. As I have said before, I will keep calling lawmakers back, until we have found the right mix of revenue options to improve our schools, eliminate Robin Hood, maintain equity, cut property taxes and preserve Texas' strong job creation climate. As governor, I believe it is my responsibility to be an active participant in this debate, offer constructive solutions, and partner with strong leaders like Lt. Gov. Dewhurst and Speaker Craddick to do what is best for our schoolchildren and taxpayers."
