We need your help – can you take a moment to call your House member today or Thursday morning with the following message?
“I am a constituent in your district, and I would like to ask Rep. Guerra to please oppose vouchers, and vote YES for the Herrero amendment to HB 1. Also, please support efforts to increase funding for schools, and increase salaries for teachers and other instructional personnel.”

Your House member is State Rep. R.D. "Bobby" Guerra, and their Capitol office phone number is 512-463-0578.

Please remember not to use school resources. Make the call on your personal phone, during your personal time. It’s OK to forward this message to colleagues, but please don’t do so on a school-provided device or using school email addresses. (If forwarding to colleagues, they can look up their state representative by entering their address on this webpage.)

Background and other important information

The Texas House of Representatives will consider House Bill 1, the House’s version of the state budget, on Thursday, April 6. Among the hundreds of amendments that will be considered are efforts to increase school funding and salaries, and an amendment to oppose spending public funds on private schools.

Legislators pay attention to the people who can vote them into or out of office, so it is vitally important that they hear from you. We know you’re busy, but please take just a minute or two to make this call and advocate for yourself and your students.

You will likely reach a staff member who is noting calls for and against these and many other budget-related issues, so don’t feel slighted if they don’t have time for a full conversation. The important thing is to make sure House members are hearing from the educators in their districts.

The Herrero Amendment to HB 1

An amendment by Rep. Abel Herrero, co-signed by Reps. Charlie Geren, Ana Hernandez, and Armando Walle, has been offered to prohibit the state from spending public funds on private school vouchers. Similar amendments have successfully been added to the budget for several sessions, but there are concerns that the amendment may not pass this year due to significant pressure from Gov. Abbott and others.

Increasing funding and raising salaries

The House budget proposes $5 billion in extra funding for education, and while this is helpful, it is nowhere near enough to ensure significant salary increases and additional funds for schools. There are amendments that attempt to help with funding and/or salaries; rather than specifying a particular amendment, we are encouraging you to ask your House member generally to support efforts in these areas.


All are invited to attend🎉
