Bill Analysis

SB 863 would require the Texas Education Agency to conduct a study on the costs regarding dual credit programs. The study would include data regarding costs of dual credit programs, identifying sources of funding, and consulting with relevant stakeholders. The TEA would be required to submit a report every other year. The TEA would be able to carry out this study only if the legislature decides to fund it.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on SB 863 because it does not promote or violate any of our principles.
