School Finance Lawsuit: Opening Statement

October 23, 2012

The school finance lawsuit is underway, with court proceedings began on Monday. This represents taxpayer dollars being used to demand more tax dollars for schools. It is not about the kids but the big winners will be the lawyers who pushed for and filed the original lawsuits.

Peggy Venable issued a statement Monday and appeared on KEYE-TV in Austin.

Here is the opening statement from the attorney who is representing taxpayer interests and is making the case that the current system of school finance is unconstitutional because it is inefficient.

We will continue to provide updates on the lawsuit which will certainly end up in the Texas Supreme Court.
