Representative Stickland Files Unfunded Mandate Repeal  print page

Austin, TX - Today, State Representative Jonathan Stickland (Bedford) filed HB 1133. This bill would allow local ISDs a campus-wide classroom average of 22 students, instead of requiring 22 students per class, repealing a burdensome and unfunded mandate.

Representative Stickland commented, "We've got to allow our local ISDs to use dollars and resources as they see fit. Placing unfunded mandates on ISDs ties the hands of our schools and sends the message that legislators in Austin know how to use their resources better than they do."

We must return to trusting our local educators on the best way to use their resources. That is why we have filed HB 1133.
