Governor Rick Perry Calls On Texans To Support His School Finance Plan

Governor Rick Perry is calling Texans to action to help pass his school finance reform plan.

"I'm asking taxpayers and parents to join the effort to negotiate a solution to make their voices heard and their views known.," said Governor Rick Perry.

To reach taxpayers and parents, Governor Perry is taking his message on the road in an 11 city, 3-day tour. He said he hopes a nudge from taxpayers will help the Senate and House find common ground soon.

On Thursday morning Governor Perry made a stop in Irving to promote his new plan. The governor's proposal includes a higher sales tax along with a pay raise for teachers and a cut in property tax. "I'm asking legislators to focus on a new set of 3-R's.. Results, resources and relief. I'm asking those legislators to get results in the classroom. Record resources to our schools. Real relief for property taxpayers in our state," said Governor Perry.

The 30-day special session began Tuesday.
