Hazlewood Act Scrutinized by House Committee

For several years, the TACT Legislative Agenda has included an item to reduce the unfunded mandate of the Hazlewood Act – free tuition for Texas veterans. Since 2009, a Legacy component allows those benefits to be passed to the vets children, and the cost to universities is growing every year.

TACT’s position is for the Legislature to either fund the program or make changes to lessen the costs to universities.
