SACC supports HB 3932

The San Antonio Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Education and Workforce Development, Katie Ferrier testified before the House Public Education Committee in support of House Bill 3932 on April 6. Sponsored by Rep. Diego Bernal, HB 3932 establishes a state advisory council regarding the education of military children and updates the current statute to better deliver on the mission and vision of the National Military Interstate Children’s Compact Commission (MIC3) from May 2009.

The Compact was created to ease education challenges encountered by the children of active-duty service members such as enrollment, eligibility, placement, and graduation when they move into a new district or state. This legislation was left pending in committee and we anticipate the Senate version, SB 2044 will have a hearing in the Senate Education Committee soon.
