If you support free community college for Texas students, add your name in support of House Bill 1947, which establishes the Texas Promise Scholarship Program:add your name
In Texas, we dream big, but we dream even bigger for our children and grandchildren. But there is a harsh reality dashing the dreams of so many in Texas. College tuition is out of control.
I've met so many amazing young people who are achieving their dreams despite the challenges they face every single day. Young people who work multiple jobs and whose families make hard sacrifices, so they can become the first person in their family to graduate from college.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
That's why I've introduced House Bill 1947, which would create the Texas Promise Scholarship Program and give every Texas high school graduate two years of community college for free.
Democrats understand that every hard-working student in Texas deserves an opportunity to go to college and be ready for the jobs of the future.
The next generation of Texas leaders should be our number one priority. We must work together to pass this bill.
In order for that to happen, we need to raise our voices -- all of us together -- and demand a better future for our families. I hope you'll support my bill and the future of Texas by adding your name today:
State Representative, Houston
