A Session Recap on the Bottom Line: Children and the 82nd Texas Legislature
Our 2011 series on Texas children and the state's bottom line concludes with this report on what the year's legislative session will mean for our state and its future: Texas kids. Our recap contains highlights of what the session did for children's health, security, and wellbeing at school, home, and the community.
With details about the budget and hundreds of key bills for children, the summary finds there were more than 50 true wins that became law--and roughly as many bad proposals for children and families that, thankfully, did not. One of the toughest budget fights in decades also resulted in big changes for children.
