HB3468 by Isett (Relating to an intensive reading and language intervention pilot program. ), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would allow the commissioner of education to establish by rule an intensive reading and language intervention program. The bill would authorize the Texas Education Agency to set aside up to $6 million to fund the program from funds appropriated for accelerated instruction under Chapter 28.0211, Education Code.
Local Government Impact
To the extent that a program established under the bill redirects funding that would otherwise be granted to a broad range of school districts, there could be a loss of funding in some districts with gains among districts participating in the program.
