Talking Points:

  • Maintaining a strong and educated workforce is essential to maintaining our state’s economic success.
  • Current Texas law – passed originall as HB 1403 - is a commonsense approach to ensure that young people who have grown up in Texas can access the education that Texas businesses need.
  • This law has made it possible for thousands of young Texans to complete their education and further contribute to the economy.
  • This law also provides an obvious return on investment to our state. Given Texas’ investment per year to educate students in public schools, not allowing students educated in Texas to complete a higher education would reduce their ability to be more productive, earn more and contribute more in taxes.
  • We ask that you help preserve our economic standing and enable our state to produce more college graduates by upholding Texas’ current in-state tuition law.
