Statement by Bob Harvey, President & CEO, Greater Houston Partnership, on the filing of House Bill 3 by House Public Education Committee Chairman Dan Huberty (R-Kingwood):
"House Bill 3 is a thoughtful and thorough piece of legislation and will serve all kids in Texas well. The Greater Houston Partnership applauds House Speaker Dennis Bonnen, House Public Education Committee Chairman Dan Huberty and the Texas House for putting forth legislation that will overhaul the Texas public school finance system, better serve our kids and reduce the burden of recapture on our local school districts. This issue has been left unaddressed for far too long. The time is now to pass meaningful reform and the Houston business community looks forward to continuing our work with the Legislature on this issue."
