No Change Expected for Hazlewood

 KXAN Austin reports the U.S. Supreme Court has overturned the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals' decision, keeping Hazlewood Act restricted to veterans who enlisted in Texas. SCOTUS rules based on the stand taht Texas has the irght to regulate their education system. 

As the 85th Legislature beings, there is no hint our lawmakers will decide to modify the Legacy Component of Hazlewood, leaving it an unfunded mandate affecting not only tuition costs for all students, but overall university budgets as well.

TACT stands by our veterans and their loved ones, but holds the stance that our Legislature should appropriate funds to alleviate the costs brought on by the Legacy Component.
