Senate panel considers bill to simplify school finance formula

Sen. Kirk Watson, D-Austin, challenges sponsor Sen. Larry Taylor, R-Friendswood, with a question during debate on amendments to SB 3 school choice legislation up in the Senate on March 30, 2017.  The original bill was modified greatly during an afternoon-long debate. 

The Senate Education Committee discussed a bill that would radically simplify the state's school finance formula, stripping it of some antiquated provisions. Parents and educators who testified wanted a few new provisions added in.
