Governor Greg Abbott has published the following press release:

“Governor Greg Abbott last night called on members of the Texas Legislature to expand education freedom for all Texas students and get school choice across the finish line at the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s (TPPF) 2023 Parent Empowerment Leadership Summit dinner in Austin.

‘As we traveled the state of Texas—helping educators, legislators, and Texans understand what we were doing about school choice—we began on the 20 yard line,’ said Governor Abbott. ‘With each passing day, we made yard after yard, first down after first down. We as a state have an obligation to our kids—to get them educated—and we can do that with a universal Education Savings Account program in the state of Texas. What we are doing is running a relay race that began in 1989. The baton has now been handed off to me, and it is my job to carry it to the finish line. I am committed to however long it takes, and I will not stop until we get school choice passed in the state of Texas.’”
