Texas: Calls Needed to Support College Scholarships

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

An important bill is being considered in the House Higher Education
Committee during their meeting April 10. H.B. 1250, sponsored by
Representative Charlie Howard, will amend the current law and allow
low income private school students to receive the Texas Grant
Scholarship (this will include private school students at home).

This bill will remove the term "accredited" that is presently required
for the Texas Grant Scholarship. This will remove the discrimination
against non-accredited private schools and homeschools in Texas.

Please take a moment and call the Higher Education Committee to show
your support for this bill.

REQUESTED ACTION

Please call the members of the House Higher Education Committee before
April 10, 2007, and give them this message:

"Please support H.B. 1250 which will remove current discrimination
against some low income students in receiving scholarships."
