Governor Abbott, so far, has held true to his threat to keep the Texas Legislature in Austin - in many cases, hundreds of miles away from their homes, families, jobs and businesses - until they finally cave on multiple decades of resistance to school vouchers. We're proud to be joined by two lawmakers with a front row seat to Abbott's charade: Senator Sarah Eckhardt of Austin and Rep. James Talarico of Round Rock share their perspectives on why vouchers are bad for Texas, who's really behind Abbott's relentless campaign for them, and what the likely eventual outcome may be.
Find Senator Sarah Eckhardt at https://senate.texas.gov/member.php?d=14, and Representative James Talarico at https://house.texas.gov/members/member-page/?district=50.
Thanks for listening - and we'd love to meet YOU in person at one of our two upcoming 2023 Holiday Parties! Details and tickets at https://progresstexas.org/.
