Our friends at Keep HB1403 just sent out this action alert:
Moments ago, SB 1819, the legislation that would repeal in-state tuition for Texans regardless of status, was added to the Senate Intent Calendar. That means that the bill could come up for a vote before the full Senate as early as tomorrow.
In-state tuition repeal would be detrimental to our students and our families. We have an obligation to work to stop the legislature from repealing this smart public policy.
Please ask your Senator to “block” the bill from coming for a vote. If at least 13 Senators disagree with a piece of legislation, they can “block” a bill – or keep it from being voted on before the full Senate.
We will keep you posted as developments occur.
