Texas Supreme Court Hears Debate Over School Finance

School finance reform, is it an issue for the courts or the legislature? That's the question that was argued in Austin, Wednesday.

The Texas Supreme Court must decide if it agrees with a lower court ruling that found the school funding system unconstitutional.

"The state of Texas makes very clear in it's argument today that the Texas Constitution is unequivocal that that obligation falls upon the Texas legislature," said Greg Abbott, Texas Attorney General.

In the meantime, legislators continue to debate a school finance plan in their special session.
