Austin, TX — State Rep. Erin Zwiener today voted in favor of House Bill 2000, filed by Rep. Chris Paddie, which issues $369.6 million to the Texas State University System in tuition revenue bonds and for construction and infrastructure improvement projects. $90 million of those funds would go to Texas State University’s main campus in San Marcos. Rep. Zwiener is a co-author on the legislation, which is authored by Rep. Chris Turner (Grand Prairie) and focuses on facility improvement projects on higher education campuses across the state of Texas.

“I am thankful to represent Texas State in the Capitol, and I am proud of the funding we were able to secure for the university today,” said Rep. Zwiener. “These funds will help to enrich the lives of students and their experiences in the classroom. San Marcos students will have a new, state-of-the-art building in which to learn and grow.”

$90 million of the funds going to the Texas State University System will go directly toward construction of a STEM classroom building at the Texas State University main campus located in San Marcos, Texas. HB 2000 authorizes the issuance of a total of $3.8 billion in tuition revenue bonds and construction projects to institutions around the state of Texas.
