My son is the the Spring Branch FFA program, a program that reaches all of Spring Branch students through their Santa's Farm and livestock show vists by the elementary schools. These types of programs are vunerable to catastrophic budget cuts. Former Lt. Governor Bill Hobby is proposing another way besides radical budget cuts including tapping the rainy day fund (if this is not a rainy day I dont kown what is)and raising taxes on alcohol and tobacco and eliminating tax exemptions. We need to support his efforts and put education first. It's good for the kids, it's good for business.

I would be willing to pay higher property taxes to maintain the programs we have in SBISD. The legislature needs to remove the restrictions they placed on the ability of local school districts to raise taxes. I see no difference between the previous situation where the majority of school districts were at their cap and the Supreme Court found that the situation resulted in a de facto state property tax in violation of the state constitution.
