Article III of the budget addresses public and higher education, including the Texas Education Agency and school finance, and the Teacher Retirement System. The Art. III subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee will be responsible for recommendations on fine-tuning the base budget, and will hold many hearings in the coming weeks before the full committee votes out a revised budget.
