Valley Schools May Lose With Judicial Legislation

Aaron Pena has a post that has me concerned. The legislature's failure to get school finance going will end up sending the matter to the Texas Supreme Court. This is a bad thing for the RGV because while such matters are handled by the Legislature, we and our interests are represented. If our local Rep. believes that an amendment or any part of a bill is detrimental to our region, our Rep. can vote against it or try to have changes made. We don't have that if the courts take over. I don't know that this was the intent of the stalwarts in this last special session or not.

We stand to lose money for our schools, under any plan other than the current Robin Hood system. There is nothing we can do at this point except wait and see what happens. We have no voice in the matter once the court takes over.
