Governor Greg Abbott today requested Individual Assistance for Harris, Fayette, Grimes and Parker counties from the federal government. If the request is granted by the President, affected citizens in these counties may be eligible for Individual Assistance grants of up to $33,000 from the federal government, and low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration. If granted, and as further damage assessments are conducted in coordination with local officials, additional counties may be added as they meet federal requirements for assistance.
As severe weather continues across the State of Texas, Governor Abbott today declared a state of disaster in the following Texas Counties: Austin, Bastrop, Fort Bend, Colorado, Grimes, Harris, Montgomery, Waller and Wharton Counties. Additional counties may be added as the situation develops. Governor Abbott received a briefing at the Department of Public Safety's State Operations Center this afternoon and held a press conference immediately afterwards.
Rep. Dwayne Bohac, a Houston Republican who attended the Thursday panel, said he thinks the House would’ve passed the Senate’s tax credit scholarship bill “overwhelmingly” last year — if it had made it to the floor for a vote. Instead, it died in the House Ways and Means Committee.
He emphasized that the concept was “not a voucher” and said it would have disproportionally helped poor and minority students.

School choice is the civil rights issue of our day, especially in Texas. A family's access to a high quality education should be a basic civil right. For me, this is about economic justice — helping the working poor and giving education consumers real choices. Education is, indeed, the great equalizer. In the marketplace, the customer is always right. The education marketplace should be no different.
