Not much time left in the session. Things will have to align for this bill to make with less than 30 days left.

If Patrick and Abbott want to get this done, they will.

My guess is they looked at what happened in Southlake and realized this is important to their voters. To get triple the usual turnout and see a 70% share for every anti-CRT candidate? That's a big deal.

Better late than never.

I'm up for a double win. Decriminalize a plant and forbid racist indoctrination of our children.

That twitter image is the filed version of the bill. The committee has already had a substitute that removes any reference to h-1.

Bill text.

The new committee version is set on Calendars for tomorrow. It needs to get to the Senate ASAP to avoid the growing backlog over there.

Edit. It looks like the Senate already passed their version of the bill which also leaves out h-1.

So, if the House can pass their version than this bill can skip to reconciliation as it is already made it out of the Senate. They can get this one completed if they want to.

What is significant about H-1 that it should be removed?

Don't know. Just saw that paragraph was filed and then removed in committee in both houses.

Typically, those removals are based upon feedback from committee members and are intended to make the bill acceptable to vote out.

Refusing to substitute by removing controversial sections is how bills die in committee.

Here is the removed paragraph that was included, erroneously in that tweet:

(h-1) In adopting the essential knowledge and skills for the
social studies curriculum, the State Board of Education shall adopt
essential knowledge and skills that develop each student's civic
knowledge, including an understanding of:
(1) the fundamental moral, political, and
intellectual foundations of the American experiment in
self-government, as well as the history, qualities, traditions, and
features of civic engagement in the United States;
(2) the structure, function, and processes of
government institutions at the federal, state, and local levels;
and
(3) the founding documents of the United States,
including the Declaration of Independence, the United States
Constitution, the Federalist Papers (including but not limited to
Essays 10 and 51), excerpts from Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy
in America, the first Lincoln-Douglas debate, and the writings of
the Founding Fathers of the United States.

Amazing how conservative planks on ballots brings out voters and wins and establishment stuff, well, doesn't.

And there's people on here who will still take their kids go to those schools and let the Federal government get away with it. Sheep on both sides.

Parents being involved in raising their kids. Hold school board and teachers accountable.

Abbott can get this done even with limited time remaining.

This needs to pass ASAP and then Abbott needs to drop the hammer on the mask mandate!

When are we going to pull our kids from the government schools and demand our tax money? I've already pulled mine, but I subsidize this indoctrination. If its not CRT, its just something else. Plus you can't stop the teachers from teaching what they were brainwashed with. The alternative is to let the market decide. The government needs to be out of the education business.

Welcome to the Texas Leg!

The bill was filed on March 11 which put it almost 2 months behind then. Everything looks to have processed normally since that point.

But, you are starting to see why so many bills die in May as they simply run out of calendar space to vote on every bill that is not passing by unanimous consent.

Throw in a week of closure due to ice storm, sprinkle in pandemic issues and budget constraints and you have a perfect storm for a significantly larger number of bills dying in May.

This bill is actually in good shape for being filed so late.

The state's budget (SB1) is only a week ahead of this one.

Never. They would just replace it with a different tax. No way in hell they would let me take a 66% cut in taxes and just walk away from that.

The bill doesn't outlaw CRT by name, it bans the teaching of the central ideas, like that one race is superior to another, or that a person is inherently racist based on their race, etc.

How is this not just common sense? Do we need a bill introduced to ban the promotion of rape or murder in our schools?

You would think, unfortunately we have people pushing crt nonsense, so here we are. If a group starts pushing accepting rape or murder we will likely have to pass a law to stop that as well.

They'll just repackage it as something else and bring it back under a new name.
