Governor's "Budget Compact" Leaves Out Texas Children
 
Austin - Today Representative Mike Villarreal issued the following statement in response to Governor Rick Perry's proposed "Budget Compact."
 
"Governor Perry loves to talk about his principles in the abstract, but he doesn't want to discuss the disabled kids who lose health services when he won't close corporate tax loopholes, or the students crowded into full classrooms when he won't touch the Rainy Day Fund. After the deep and unnecessary education cuts that Governor Perry championed, it's no surprise that his Compact doesn't say a word about educating schoolchildren.
 
"The Governor doesn't seem to understand that we must educate our children if we are going to build our economy and create jobs."
