Abbott Adds Higher Education Spending to Special Session Agenda

With just days left in the third special session, Gov. Greg Abbott announced a new priority for lawmakers to tackle: “legislation to improve higher education in Texas.”

While the topic may sound broad, the practical implication is legislation appropriating federal funds to Texas universities.

Earlier this week, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick asked Abbott to add tuition revenue bonds (TRBs) to the special session call.

TRBs are one of two types of bonds used to finance expansion in public higher education.
