Honorable Rob Eissler, Chair, House Committee on Public Education
John S. O'Brien, Director, Legislative Budget Board
HB2237 by Eissler (Relating to high school success and college readiness in public schools.), As Introduced
The legislation codifies existing practice at the Texas Education Agency and as a result is anticipated to have no fiscal impact. The agency currently expends $28,710,000 per year on the High School Initiative, which in the 2006-07 biennium is authorized under Rider 59 of the General Appropriations Act. The appropriations process for fiscal years 2008 and 2009 anticipates continuation of that expenditure, contingent on passage of legislation providing a statutory basis for the agency to do so. The contingency provision is Rider 53, Texas High School Project, in House Bill 1.
