Legislative Special Session Looks to End on a High Note

The 83rd Texas Legislative Special Session will end June 30. Some good news to report:

  • Judge Randy Catterton, the judge who ruled against home schooling father Jim Loose, resigned from the 231st District Court at the end of May, and Gov. Rick Perry will appoint a temporary judge to fill his position.
  • During the Special Session no bad bills were passed by the Legislature that affected home schooling or parental rights.
  • Governor Perry vetoed SB 429 last Sunday, after Tim Lambert asked him to in this letter, which explains why the bill was so bad.

THSC is thankful for the advances that were made in the causes of home schooling and parental rights this legislative session.
