Relating to a study on incorporating fine arts into the foundation
curriculum for public schools.
Estimated Twoyear Net Impact to General Revenue Related Funds for HB2230, As Introduced : a
negative impact of ($231,140) through the biennium ending August 31, 2023.
The bill would make no appropriation but could provide the legal basis for an appropriation of funds to
implement the provisions of the bill
HB 2230 would require the Commissioner of Education to establish a task
force to study the utility, efficacy, and feasibility of
incorporating fine arts into foundation curriculum.
Texas Action is opposed to HB 2230 on the principle of limited government and individual liberty. It is inappropriate for fine arts to be required as core subjects state-wide. This task force is thus unnecessary.
