As expected, activity has indeed increased with the Texas Legislature as the halfway point of the session has been passed. The Senate passed, Senate Bill 3, a substitute version of its school choice bill, which now heads to the House, where leaders have shown little interest the bill.

On the House side, the Public Education Committee passed House Bill 22, which attempts to make the A-F accountability system more palatable for educators. Educators would rather A-F go away, but in testimony grudgingly said that the new bill is better than the old one. The measure now goes to the full House.

The House is preparing for a marathon budget session on Thursday, hearing any number of amendments that have been attached.
