Policy Title: H.B.6: Instructional Materials Allotment - Go to the policy
Author(s): Rob Eissler

Description: Amends Education code. The Texas Constitution requires that the State Board of Education (SBOE) set aside sufficient funds from the Available School Fund (ASF) to provide free textbooks for each student in the state's public education system. The Legislature then appropriates the amount distributed to the ASF from the PSF for textbooks, the Technology Allotment, and other school finance areas.
