Fiscal Notes

Estimated Two¬≠year 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

Bill Analysis

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.

Vote Recommendation Notes

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.
