May 13, 2016 | Austin, Texas | Press Release

Governor Greg Abbott today issued the following statement on the Texas Supreme Court's decision to uphold the state's school finance system:

"Today's ruling is a victory for Texas taxpayers and the Texas Constitution. The Supreme Court's decision ends years of wasteful litigation by correctly recognizing that courts do not have the authority to micromanage the State's school finance system. I am grateful for the excellent work of the State's lawyers at the Attorney General's Office, without whom this landmark ruling could not have been achieved."
