Governor Abbott encouraged Texans to contact their legislators to voice their support for school choice at Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Parent Empowerment Rally at the Capitol in Austin on October 16th. At said rally, Governor Abbott said the following:

“I am here to tell you that, contrary to what you may be reading in the newspaper, we are closer than we’ve even been on a deal that will deliver school choice for you, your families, and all Texans,” said Governor Abbott. “The time for school choice is now in the great state of Texas. As I’ve traveled across the state, I have talked to so many parents and one thing I repeatedly hear in every location I’ve been in is that parents know what is best for their child. Working together, we will deliver school choice and a brighter future for every child across Texas.”
