Austin, TX - Today, the Texas House Committee on Public Education released its Interim Report to the 86th Legislature. Speaker Joe Straus previously issued charges to the committee covering a wide range of topics including Hurricane Harvey Recovery, special education and school safety. The document contains a summary of issues discussed and testimony received during hearings over the last 18 months, as well as recommendations for possible policy and legislative changes. The Interim Report can be accessed online via the Texas House of Representatives website at https://house.texas.gov/_media/pdf/committees/reports/85interim/Public-Education-Committee-Interim-Report-2018.pdf.

Committee Chairman Dan Huberty thanked the members of the committee for their dedication and hard work saying, "the extraordinary events that occurred since the last session adjourned spurred members to delve deeply into what some may view as difficult topics without the time constraints of a legislative session."

The committee convened eight times and heard more than 48 hours of testimony on its 12 separate charges. "I appreciate the commitment given by these dedicated legislators to seek a better understanding of the issues facing our public education system and how we may best improve it for Texas students."

State Representative Dan Huberty was first appointed to serve as Chairman of the House Committee on Public Education for the 85th Legislative Session by Speaker Joe Straus. Huberty was recently re-elected to serve House District 127 in November 2018. He will be sworn-in to serve his fifth term on January 8, 2019. He has also served on the Pensions, State Affairs, Calendars and Select Committees on Redistricting and Transportation Funding.
