Re-Cap of TACT Legislative Day March 10

TACT members met at the Texas Capitol Rotunda on Friday, March 10, to visit with staff members of key legislators to present the TACT Legislative Agenda, but mostly to discuss proposed bills TACT President Klein spoke of in his article regarding tenure, CRT/Academic Freedom and DEI. It seems that many of the staff members had more second-hand information than hard facts. Educators educate and that’s what these members did. With every conversation, they gave specific examples of why these bills are not good for higher education, students and Texas. President Jim Klein with the assistance of TACT Legislative Director Beaman Floyd visited key legislative offices (see below) to make sure TACT members’ voices are heard.
