Legislative Visits

TACT First Alert: 2/4/2015

Unfunded Mandate Receives Attention

TACT was an early and loud advocate for the Legislature to fund the Hazlewood Act, legislation that provides free tuition to military veterans and their children.  According to an article today in the Austin American-Statesman, universities absorbed the $169 million cost last year for 40,000 students while being reimbursed only $15 million.  The Legislative Budget Board estimates that the cost to universities, or the state if our appropriation request is enacted, will rise to $380 million by 2019.

TACT First Alert: 1/13/15

Happy New Year and welcome back to campus.  We hope one of your New Year’s resolutions will be to get more involved with your state association -- we are ready to listen to your thoughts, ideas and needs! Your voice is more important than ever during the upcoming legislative session starting today!
