Representative Jeff Leach Issues Statement on School Finance Ruling

PLANO - In response to the Texas Supreme Court’s ruling on the constitutionality of Texas’s school finance system, Representative Jeff Leach released the following statement:

“After years of litigation, today the Texas Supreme Court ruled that Texas’ system of school finance is indeed constitutional. While I applaud and agree with the Texas Supreme Court’s ruling, make no mistake: this is not the end of this journey, but the beginning. The duly elected Texas Legislature – not the Courts – has the immense responsibility to work to reform, improve and strengthen education in Texas. As I have done since the first day I took office, I am eager to continue advocating and fighting for our school children so that the Texas of tomorrow is even brighter than the Texas of today.”
