We have to fix public school finance, we have to base funding on an equitable source that isn’t subject to market fluctuations. Also, if charter schools are going to get state tax dollars they should have to accept any student who applies, including behavioral, special ed, and physical disabilities. They should have to provide every service a public school does.
Ban bumper stocks, background checks for all purchases, and fully enforce the laws we already have.
Education finance which impacts schools and teachers, correcting the current funding issues will also mean tackling property tax reform. The funding formula needs to be adjusted to ensure the state pays its fair share which will lower the tax burden on families. Ensuring TXdot is properly funded to complete transportation projects on time to face the growing population needs. The other area is children's healthcare, ensuring we don't lose funding and create resources to make sure our children do not fall through the cracks because mom/dad make $20 beyond the threshold of certain programs.
I would support an independent committee of non-elected members redrawing districts and certifying with the courts.
Local control is key to ensuring every city or town has the jurisdiction to do right by their citizens. Increasing authority in some areas would be beneficial to ensure corporations do not infringe on the rights of Texans. Keeping our water and air clean is the basic building block to ensuring healthy Texans and ensuring our farmers & ranchers can keep providing us with quality food.
