AUSTIN (KXAN) — A new proposal would revamp the money that Texas’ community colleges get from the state legislature.
House Bill 8 would change the funding formula for the money that the state gives its 50 community college districts. State Rep. Gary VanDeaver, R-New Boston, filed the bill Wednesday. If approved, it would take effect Sept. 1.
The proposal follows last year’s recommendation for state funding based on “measurable outcomes” from a commission that the Texas legislature created in 2022.
