A Texas House vote takes away consideration of state funding for private schools for the rest of the fourth special session.
That is after an amendment from representative John Raney of Bryan to delete education savings accounts (ESA)from House Bill one passed by a margin of 84 to 63.
Also voting to remove ESA’s from House Bill one was representative Kyle Kacal of College Station.
Two other state representatives who represent portions of the Brazos Valley voted against Raney’s amendment. They were Stan Gerdes, whose district includes Burleson and Milam counties, and Angelia Orr, whose district includes Leon County.
