May all of our actions and words today be for the good of your people, the people that you have entrusted to us and for whom we will render an account.

MOMENT OF SILENCE OBSERVED

REPRESENTATIVE C.J. HARRIS: As you all know, even the freshmen who are here, this job can be very difficult on our families—the time that it requires to be away from them. And then when the unexpected happens and we lose someone, it makes that job much more difficult.
Last night, my deskmate and my buddy, lost his daddy. When I talked to him last night on the phone to check in on him he said, "You know, my daddy thought this job was really important and so I think he would want me to be here today. The one day that we are constitutionally required to do something, he would want me to be here." And so our friend, Brad Buckley, is here with us even though he lost his daddy at the age of 79, Tommy Buckley, just last night. So members, I ask that you join me in a moment of silence in paying tribute to a great man, somebody that Brad spent every day talking to. Members, join me in a moment of silence.

REMARKS ORDERED PRINTED

Representative Cain moved to print remarks by Representative C.J. Harris.

The motion prevailed.

SECOND READING

The following bills were laid before the house and read second time:

CSHB 1 ON SECOND READING
(by Bonnen)

CSHB 1, General Appropriations Bill.

CSHB 1 - POINT OF ORDER

Representative Tinderholt raised a point of order against further consideration of CSHB 1 under Rule 8, Section 4, of the House Rules. The speaker overruled the point of order, announcing his decision to the house as follows:

Mr. Tinderholt raises a point of order against further consideration of CSHB 1 under Rule 8, Section 4, on the grounds that the bill contains matter that changes general law.
Mr. Tinderholt alleges that Rider 15 for the secretary of state's appropriation changes general law because it requires the secretary to spend $1.5 million to participate in a named national system for states to exchange certain voter information. Under its plain language, the rider does not direct the secretary to enter into an agreement but rather details that the secretary may spend appropriated funds in support of an existing agreement authorized by general law. Thus, the rider permissibly details the expenditure of appropriated funds. See H. Rule 8, § 4 expl. n. 2, 88th Legis. (2023) (explaining principle).
Accordingly, the point of order is respectfully overruled.

MOTION FOR EN BLOC ADOPTION OF AMENDMENTS

(1)  Following the appropriations to the Texas Education Agency, amend Rider 81, Property Tax Relief, in Subsections (c) and (d) (page III-28), by striking "$12,001,216,000" and substituting "$7,409,216,000" in each place it appears.
(2)  Following the appropriations to the Teacher Retirement System (page III-43), add the following appropriately numbered rider:
____.  Benefit Enhancement for Certain Annuitants. The amount of $4,592,000,000 is appropriated from the General Revenue Fund to the Teacher Retirement System for fiscal year 2024 of the state fiscal biennium ending August 31, 2025, to provide a one-time benefit enhancement to annuitants of the system receiving a monthly retirement or death benefit annuity during the month preceding the month the benefit enhancement is paid by using the total amount appropriated for fiscal year 2024 to provide a benefit enhancement that is proportionate to each annuitant's annuity. It is the intent of the legislature that the benefit enhancement described by this rider be provided in addition to any benefit enhancements provided by HB 600 or similar legislation of the 88th Legislature, Regular Session, 2023, providing benefit enhancements to annuitants of the Teacher Retirement System.
(3)  Adjust totals and methods of financing accordingly.

Amendment No. 36 - Point of Order

Representative Vasut raised a point of order against further consideration of Amendment No. 36 under Rule 8, Section 4, of the House Rules. The speaker sustained the point of order, announcing his decision to the house as follows:

Mr. Vasut raises a point of order against further consideration of the Bryant Amendment (Amendment No. 36) under Rule 8, Section 4, on the grounds that the amendment change general law.
The rider takes money appropriated for property tax relief money and redirects it instead to the Teacher Retirement System of Texas for purposes of providing a one-time benefit enhancement in addition to any other benefit enhancement provided by HB 600 or similar legislation.
Among other laws, Chapter 824, Government Code, generally governs TRS benefits, including how those benefits are calculated and any available increases. See, e.g., Section 824.203 (Standard Service Retirement Benefits); Subchapter H, Chapter 824, Government Code (Increases in Annuities). And Section 821.006, Government Code, prohibits TRS from taking any action, including providing a new monetary benefit payable by the system, that would result in an increase to the time required to amortize the unfunded actuarial liabilities of the system beyond a certain period.
To the extent the rider authorizes a cost-of-living adjustment, it would alter the calculation of benefits expressly prescribed under Chapter 824 and likely require an increase in the time required to amortize unfunded actuarial liabilities in violation of Section 812.006, Government Code.
Accordingly, the point of order is well-taken and sustained.

The ruling precluded further consideration of Amendment No. 36.

Amendment No. 37

(1)  In Article III of the bill, add the following appropriately numbered rider after the appropriations to the Texas Education Agency:
____.  Prohibition on Use of Appropriated Money for School Vouchers or Other Similar Programs. Money appropriated by this Act may not be used to pay for or support a school voucher, including an education savings account, tax credit scholarship program, or a grant or other similar program through which a child may use state money for non-public primary or secondary education.

AMENDMENT NO. 45 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE HERRERO: Members, you may have heard of this amendment. It's a simple amendment. All we are doing is restating what is already in the Constitution and that is: the funds appropriated for our public schools will remain as such. If you look at the amendment, it says that this amendment prohibits the use of appropriated money for school vouchers or other similar programs meaning the monies appropriated by the state will be for our public primary and public secondary education. And just so that you know, under the Education Code as it exists now, an open enrollment charter school is part of the public school system of this state.

REPRESENTATIVE BUCKLEY: First of all, I have tremendous respect for Representative Herrero and his passion about this issue as do many of you on this floor. I don't think there's anyone in this body that does not love our public schools. It's been my family's life. It's what we've done. It's where my kids have gone to school. But I have tremendous faith in this body at a time when our kids have suffered through a pandemic, when we've seen learning loss, when we've seen families torn apart by disease, and we've seen families torn apart by economic disruption. Our kids are behind and I can tell you, on Tuesday, there will be six pieces of legislation laid out before the Public Education Committee that will simply offer up a list of ideas of ways that we could potentially, if this body agreed to it, move our kids forward and provide resources for our schools who are honoring the fact that we all know that parents are in control of their children's education. And I feel like this process with this amendment turns things really in the wrong direction. It is the proverbial cart before the horse. So with that I will respectfully oppose and speak against this amendment. I would also like to move to table this amendment so that we can begin to have a discussion in the process that the Texas House is known for, to be thoughtful about it and come up with good policy.

Representative Buckley moved to table Amendment No. 45.

HERRERO: Members, if you support your neighborhood schools, if you support your public school teachers—whether they work at a public education school or a public charter school—we want to make sure that we vote against the motion to table. So for the new members, they are asking not to vote on this subject matter. This is a procedural vote. They are asking you to vote to table so I'm asking you to vote no on the motion to table so that we can actually get on the subject matter before us. That is to ensure that our public funds are used for our public schools. And so for that, I ask you to oppose the motion to table so that we can actually vote on the subject matter before us.

A record vote was requested by Representative Herrero.

AMENDMENT NO. 45 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE HARRISON: There may be no greater issue that we grapple with as a body this legislative session than how we educate the next generation of Texans. This amendment should be opposed both on policy grounds and on procedural grounds. An overwhelming majority of Texans and Texas parents support education freedom. We are blessed, and I would be the first to say, to have tremendous public schools in the State of Texas. I stand here before you as a very proud public school parent. But not every Texan has that opportunity. We've got to oppose this amendment on policy and also on the procedural grounds. As Chairman Buckley laid out, we have numerous bills that have been filed this session and we, as a deliberative body, owe it to our constituents to have a chance to deliberate the questions of education freedom. I rise in strong opposition to this amendment. Thank you.

REPRESENTATIVE SCHATZLINE: Something that I often hear from members on the other side of this issue is that we should listen to the wishes of our constituents when determining our position on legislation. One of the most important demographics to me, and the demographic that should be important to all of you, is the parents in our districts. Our Texas parents are struggling under the weight of high property taxes and rapid inflation. They've suffered with balancing the COVID pandemic and the effects that had on our children's education. I know that the taxpayer-funded lobbyists and special interest groups have become very active in the last few days flooding our offices with calls, pressuring us to oppose school choice, and trying to drown out the voice of parents across the state.
I would like to share with y'all some statistics about Texas parents that should make clear the position of our constituents to us. According to a UT Tyler poll conducted in March of this year, 60 percent of Texas voters support education freedom. The University of Texas at Austin conducted a similar study also showing a plurality of Texas voters support such measures. And then, this UT Austin study also helped debunk the fallacy that rural voters strongly oppose education freedom as the polls concluded there was actually not a rural divide on the issue of school choice in the State of Texas. And finally, and most importantly, the research shows that 74 percent of parents with school-age children want control over their children's education dollars. I ask you, members, please vote "no" on this amendment. The reality is that I believe that we have never seen any type of competition harm an industry. Our public schools are no different and this has got to be something that we get to discuss and work towards as a body. I believe that parents should be empowered in the State of Texas. Please vote no on the amendment.

REPRESENTATIVE FRANK: Members, I don't come up here much. I'd ask if I could just get three minutes of your attention for a second.
You can be for all parents and all kids in your district. Public schools are great. I look forward to voting later for a big increase in funding to public schools. The vast majority of kids in Texas will always go to public schools and I want them to thrive. The future of our state depends on it. But no matter how good the school is in your district—somebody in here has the best school district in this state—no matter how good those schools are, every child has different needs and parents should have available options. No school can be all things to all people no matter how good your school district is. We can do multiple things at once. We can be pro-public school, pro-charter school, and even possibly consider being pro-ESAs if we want to meet the needs of every parent and every child in this state. I really think everybody in here wants to. I have talked to a lot of you over the last month as we have been working on this, and it has been very respectful—at least the discussions that I've had with members. But you know what? Virtually every member that I've talked to that is against this has also told me about at least one exception in their family—a child, a grandchild, a friend that, for whatever reason, public school wasn't perfect for them for their entire career. The difference is, members, every one of us is for choice when it comes to your own children and your own grandchildren. The difference is that members in this room have the resources and the connections to make the choices that many of your constituents don't have. The bills that I hope at some point we can at least discuss on the floor focus on providing some of the same options that you and I have for kids and parents in this state. I ask for you to be for every parent and every child in this state and give your constituents the same choices that you and I have. I ask you to vote against this amendment.

HERRERO: Members, please stick with our public schools.

BUCKLEY: I hope I didn't cause any confusion on the motion to table. But what we stand in here today is not in a situation to being for or against public schools. It's about the process that we have in the Texas House. It's about the process of what we're doing today, a constitutionally required effort to pass a budget. But then that is the framework. The flesh has to be put on these bones and that's what happens in our committees. And I am absolutely certain that the Texas House Committee on Public Education will have a thoughtful discussion on Tuesday with several hundred Texans coming to the Texas Capitol to make their opinion known. And then, as we always do, we'll get together—Rs and Ds, those that are for it, against it, and kind of in the middle, and come up with some sort of policy that may or may not leave the committee. But I do believe that we should respect the process and make sure that we have the discussions in the proper order so that we can have good policy that leaves this body. So that's why I'm opposing the amendment today.

REPRESENTATIVE C.J. HARRIS: Chairman Buckley, is it your position that the debate that we're trying to have over this amendment in this policy area—given the fact that we have several bills that will be heard in your committee, in the Public Education Committee, next week—the budget is not the appropriate place to have this debate? Is that your position?

BUCKLEY: Absolutely. We have to look at what ideas are brought before the committee and then, as you know, many bills before a committee go through a process of changing and amending and working it out amongst members. That's the process. If this amendment is adopted, you could take a simple grant that special education parents are now receiving to provide services or special items for their special needs kids and, basically, this amendment says you can't do it. We need to wrap policy around this budget. We've set the framework and I just ask that you oppose this amendment. Help the Public Education Committee, help your colleagues wrap policy around the budget, and let us go through the process to see what policy may come forth from the Public Education Committee in the Texas House. And then that's only one hurdle if that were to occur. This raucous body of folks that care about the kids back home will again have another opportunity to decide on the policy. So that's what I ask is we simply let that process go forth.

REPRESENTATIVE SMITHEE: Dr. Buckley, I think you and Mr. Harris just made a good point. Is your meeting for next week on these bills, is it posted currently?

BUCKLEY: Yes, sir. It's been posted since yesterday morning.

SMITHEE: And so the public will have notice of that hearing, right?

BUCKLEY: Yes, sir.

SMITHEE: And people from all over the state will be able to come to that hearing and testify for or against the proposals that are before the committee.

BUCKLEY: That's correct.

SMITHEE: And that's part of the democratic process, isn't it?

BUCKLEY: Absolutely.

SMITHEE: And, you know, the Texas House used to be—more so than now—a marketplace of ideas most of which were bad, some of which were good, but we were never afraid to discuss those ideas. And so my concern is we're going to take a vote here today without public input on the issues that we're voting for. And this is not just an ordinary issue. The proponents of school choice claim that it will be the greatest thing that will ever happen to school children in the State of Texas. The opponents say that it will destroy our education system. I suspect the result would be somewhere in the middle. But at least we shouldn't proceed with this important question before we let the public have a say in what we're going to do. Do you agree with that?

BUCKLEY: Yes, sir. We've argued amendments today that talk about shifting funding around that don't take into account good bills I know will be heard that will actually solve the problem these amendments were trying to solve. And so I think the process should be where we lay the policy out before a committee of our peers, we provide input from everybody in this body, and we hear from Texans about the direction they want to go for their children.

SMITHEE: I've always voted against vouchers in the past when we've had these proposals and I may likely vote against them again this time, but I would like to hear the input and the arguments before you and I cast that vote.

BUCKLEY: Yes, sir. And that's why I ask people to oppose the amendment to let the conversation continue so that we can have the robust debate that we have in this body. That's where we're at at this point.

SMITHEE: Thank you.

BUCKLEY: Members, I just encourage you to be thoughtful about your vote. The bills are going to be heard on Tuesday and it starts at 8 a.m. I'll be there. Tune in and you'll see Texas weighing in on this issue from across the state. Thank you.

HERRERO: Procedurally, just so you know, we are now on the amendment. If you support our public schools, if you support our public school teachers, if you support our public charter schools then you would support by voting yes for this amendment.
There was a comment that was made—And let me say this, this wouldn't be the first time, if this is adopted, that this similar amendment has previously been adopted in previous sessions on the budget. And the debate has continued, as we know, so the discussion about whether or not the debate will continue, I leave that for you to decide. Another comment that is made—Another way of thinking about this amendment is these are public funds for public schools. As I mentioned to you the Education Code specifically identifies, under 12.105, that an open enrollment charter school is part of a public school system of this state. Right? So that's a public school—public funds for public schools. Another discussion, although not mentioned specifically, was a reference to the Supplemental Special Education Services grant. Let me just say that this amendment does nothing to negatively affect that program because in order to be eligible for this program it says students must currently be, and then one point is enrolled in a Texas public school. And so these are public funds for public schools as is outlined and stated specifically in the Texas Constitution. And for that, members, please stick with our public school teachers, our neighborhood schools, and our public charter schools and vote yes for this amendment.

REASON FOR VOTE

Representative Lozano submitted the following reason for vote to be printed in the journal:

I support increasing school funding, increasing teacher pay, and reducing testing for our public school students. In addition, I support giving our schools more funding to help address our youth mental health crisis. While I agree with the premise of the amendment, the adoption of the Herrero amendment would circumvent the house legislative committee process and deprive all sides of their opportunity to be heard.

Amend CSHB 1 (house committee printing) in Article III of the bill, in the Special Provisions Relating Only to State Agencies of Higher Education, by striking Rider 61, Prohibition on Unconstitutional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Programs or Practices (page III-280).

AMENDMENT NO. 60 - REMARKS

REPRESENTATIVE NEAVE CRIADO: Diversity: the condition of having or being composed of differing elements. Equity: freedom from bias or favoritism. Inclusion: to take in or comprise as a part of a whole or group.
Members, today I ask you which of these three oppose our purpose? Which of these three threaten our triumphs or our purpose to elevate our state to its highest fulfillment, to its greatest destiny? Which of these three threaten our triumphs? The diversity of our state has made Texas a beacon for economic development. The equity evidenced from the transformations we have led from this very chamber, from our classrooms to our courtrooms, has ripened the field of opportunities. In inclusion, we find security. Security to start a family and settle down, to throw down roots from Amarillo to Galveston. And today, we have a choice to make. Before us now is a fork in the road. We can vote to defund public colleges that honor the diversity of our communities. We can vote to strip funding from young people trying to get ahead in life, trying to pull themselves up from their bootstraps simply because they acknowledge that our differences make us stronger—students who had the bravery to travel to this Texas Capitol with righteous indignation. We can muzzle our professors and force blinders on our students to prevent them from seeing themselves and their peers as they are. But we are better than that. This chamber is better than that. Our values are stronger than our weaknesses. We can choose to honor all the elements that make our Texas the strongest state in the union. We can choose to write in our laws the justice that follows generations of forced racial isolation. DEI policies loosen the pains of poverty for thousands of college students and elevate our public universities to become centers of intelligent, Socratic discourse. We have come a long way since the days when Mexican and Black students were legally prohibited from receiving an education alongside their peers. DEI policies provide our Tier 1 research universities with billions of dollars every single year in federal research funds, funds that keep Texas at the forefront of discovery, of scientific innovation, and exploration. Eliminating DEI initiatives leaves our state at an economic disadvantage and dulls our competitive edge nationally. Texas is strongest when our institutions of higher education reflect the makeup of our public schools. Texas businesses enjoy peak innovation when creativity and diversity flourish. Our state is best described by the Book of Revelation, "a great multitude, which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues standing before the throne." This great multitude of people count on us to do right by them. This great multitude of tribes has chosen us to do right by their children, to count their triumphs as our victories, to mourn their losses as our own. We have to come out of a great tribulation and we cannot return to the wilderness.

REPRESENTATIVE C. MORALES: Representative Neave Criado, thank you so much for this amendment. It is so important and I wanted to ask you, would you say that Rider 61, as written and without your amendment, infringes on the Civil Rights Act of 1964?

NEAVE CRIADO: Yes, it does. And I'll share one example of where it violates Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. The law states that the denial of language services to English learners or people with limited English proficiency is a violation. Without this amendment colleges and universities will have no choice but to deliberately ignore language services for fear of being "inclusive." The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was a stepping stone for all in the United States, not just people of color. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, and national origin. So DEI programs are put in place to ensure that there's no discrimination in the hiring, promoting, or firing of people representing these groups.

C. MORALES: Thank you. And there's a quote from Mark Twain that says, "History doesn't repeat itself, but it sure does rhyme." Would you agree that this DEI prohibition without your amendment takes us backwards to battles fought in this chamber decades ago?

NEAVE CRIADO: Unfortunately, yes. Sixty-six years ago, in the second called session of the 55th Legislature, priorities were laid out to pass segregation laws. And in this same chamber, in 1957, members of the house voted 115 to 26 to pass a bill giving the governor and school boards the power to immediately close any school or federal troops might be sent to enforce integration. They voted to close schools rather than integrate. I think folks can draw their own conclusion about what's happening here.

C. MORALES: Thank you so much. I support you and this amendment.

REPRESENTATIVE WU: Were you aware that public schools—public universities—in the State of Texas did not even legally admit black students until the 1960s and 70s in Texas?

NEAVE CRIADO: Yes.

WU: I know that seems like a really long time ago, but for me that was maybe just a few years—or maybe just a decade—before I was even born. That's within our lifetimes. Would that be fair?

NEAVE CRIADO: Yes.

WU: And when we talk about DEI, we're not just talking about ethnic or racial issues, are we?

NEAVE CRIADO: You're correct. There's a wide variety of issues—veterans, people with disabilities.

WU: Let's talk a little bit about that. One of the main points of DEI programs is to look out for whether there are intentional discriminations and sometimes unintentional discriminations. Is that fair?

NEAVE CRIADO: That's absolutely fair.

WU: In fact, there may be things that a university might be doing that they're not even aware is causing an unintended discrimination against someone. Would that be fair to say that's something that they do?

NEAVE CRIADO: Yes.

WU: And especially in relation to people that are disabled, especially in relation to our veterans who may have special needs due to their service, due to their trauma, due to their injuries they may often get overlooked in the services that the university provides. Would that be fair?

NEAVE CRIADO: That's fair. It's so important to have members and individuals from those different backgrounds at the table to be able to guide the universities and the policies so that they're not discriminatory.

WU: Absolutely. It's not enough to just say, "Dear veterans, we're not going to intentionally discriminate against you," but yet leave in place all the things that unintentionally discriminate against them. Would that be fair?

NEAVE CRIADO: Yes, that's correct.

WU: So in service to all of our people—that includes people of color, that includes people in minority communities, that includes people of religious minorities, that includes people of different physical abilities, that includes people who have service histories that brought them into the line of fire that caused them to be injured and that cause them to have differing medical conditions—it is incumbent upon us to make sure that not only do we not intentionally discriminate against them, but that all our institutions are fair. Would you agree with that?

NEAVE CRIADO: That's correct.

WU: And more than just fair, but equal. That we treat them equally, right?

NEAVE CRIADO: Precisely.

WU: That is where the "E" in DEI comes from, right?

NEAVE CRIADO: Yes.

WU: We want equality, we want equity for all of our people. Not giving any one group an advantage, but to say we will treat all students and all staff equally. That is the goal of this organization and that is the goal of our universities. Would that be fair?

NEAVE CRIADO: That is absolutely fair. We must overcome decades of past discrimination to get our state to the place that it deserves to be.

WU: And if our schools do not make sure that all students are treated equally, that all universities' staff are treated equally, we will have a harder time recruiting won't we?

NEAVE CRIADO: We're already seeing and hearing concerns from higher education professors and others that this is absolutely going to impact our state's recruitment efforts.

WU: Would you agree with me that Texas is an extremely diverse state?

NEAVE CRIADO: We have the state with the largest population that has been fueled by Latino growth. It's the state with the largest population of African Americans in the entire nation and our AAPI communities are growing at a high rate, so absolutely.

WU: Did you know that the Asian community in the State of Texas is the fastest growing community in the state?

NEAVE CRIADO: Yes, and that's something that we're proud of.

WU: And even within, let's just say, the Asian community itself there is incredible diversity within that community. Would that be fair?

NEAVE CRIADO: Yes, that's fair.

WU: And there's incredible diversity within the Latino community, right?

NEAVE CRIADO: Yes, we have folks from all backgrounds.

WU: It's important for us and important for our schools to not only recognize this diversity, but make sure that everyone from every group feels like they have a place in this world. Would that be fair?

NEAVE CRIADO: Absolutely, and that's why we need to strike this rider to ensure that our budget reflects the moral values of our state. And that is that we believe that diversity is a good thing and that it's not the bad word that it's become in this house.

WU: And so, if we delete our universities' ability to include people and to make sure that we recognize and value their diversity, and that we're inclusive of them, then this will diminish our competitive ability. Would that be fair?

NEAVE CRIADO: Absolutely, and we want to make sure Texas is the most competitive state in the nation.

WU: I opposed this original rider when it was in the Appropriations Committee and I am standing here in support of this amendment to take it off of our budget. And the reason, I think, needs to be stated very clearly. There's a lot of people out there who think that DEI programs are some kind of this nebulous, abstract type of feel-good concept. These are actually very important offices. The most important role that they play is to make sure that everyone has a fair shot, not an upper hand, not a special consideration, but to make sure that it's fair for everyone. Whether that person—that student or that professor or staff member—whether they're Black and from the inner city or whether they're white and from rural communities. Whether they're an injured veteran, whether it's somebody who's disabled, whether it's somebody with special needs, whether it's a person who's blind, whether it's a person who is hearing impaired, it makes sure that we all have a fair shot. What is wrong with diversity? Look at this body. We are diversity. We all have something to contribute. We all have something valuable about ourselves. And when we come together we add that diversity and add that difference to this body. That's how we're able to do so many things because we have different people who have different ideas and different experiences. Those are valuable things. Diversity is valuable.
The concept of equality—of equity—I can think of few American values more important than equity. To come here to be a part of a government that stands for the idea that we are all created equal and that we should all be treated equally no matter who we are, what our differences are, and what we want to achieve. The premise of American democracy is based on the idea of equality—that there is no king, that there are no princes, that there are no queens, that we are all equal under the law no matter who we are. Equity is valuable.
And the concept of inclusion, the concept of inclusion is especially important, I think especially for the people who stand around me right now. There's many of us here that, in years past, we would not have been allowed to be in this position. It wasn't that long ago that Black people and Latinos were not even allowed to be admitted into public universities. It wasn't that long ago that we were forbidden from doing certain things. It wasn't that long ago that Chinese people were forbidden from owning land. And yet we persevered and we fought and we demanded a place at the table. We were included. And now, in this effort to push back DEI, what we're saying is all you people here who now have a place at the table, all these communities who fought and bled and sometimes even died to have a seat at the table, we are now being told, "Get up and leave. Leave this table, you are no longer included." And I won't stand for that and I know a lot of people won't either. We refuse to get up from this table. We refuse to go back under. We refuse to get the scraps. We want our diversity to matter, we want us to be equal, and we want to be included. And this is something that is worth our time, not only in this body, but in our society as a whole. We should strive for all of these things. And by getting rid of this in our highest academic institutions we are saying to the world, "Texas is no longer a welcoming place."

REPRESENTATIVE REYNOLDS: Members, I am in support of Chairwoman Neave's amendment which strikes Rider 61, the prohibition of unconstitutional diversity, equity, and inclusion program and practices. I remember the words of Dr. King that "the moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends towards justice."
My colleagues are right, it was just in recent years—just recent years—that African Americans and Hispanics weren't able to attend these public colleges and universities because of the history of white supremacy. Because of the history of racism and discrimination that didn't end until the end of Jim Crow was struck down. It wasn't until then that we had an openness for African Americans to attend these universities. And here we are today, unfortunately in 2023, seeking to take away the little progress that we've made. We've made some marginal progress because of these diversity, equity, and inclusion programs. What we should be doing, members, is strengthening them. We should be adding additional resources. Because when you look at the disparities that exist still within our Tier 1 universities, there are very few minorities that are represented on faculties. There are very few students that are represented. So we're still just trying to catch up for that long history of discrimination.
DEI programs extend far beyond race. They take into account gender, sexual orientation, disabilities, veteran status, and other underrepresented identities. For the record, some people may know that based on the 2020 census, there are more African Americans in Texas than in any other state in the country. We should be embracing that diversity. Our diversity is our strength. What kind of message are we sending to the record number of African Americans? What kind of message are we sending to Hispanics and Asians and people with disabilities? The message is loud and clear: you are not welcome in Texas. We want your money, but we don't want you at our universities. That is the wrong message. Why are we trying to be on the wrong side of history when we've overcome many of the ills that our country once grappled with? There is no reason for us to go back to those dark days, but that is what we are doing.
When Governor Abbott pronounced this out of the blue, out of nowhere in February during Black History Month, it was an insult to many of the African Americans and many minorities in this state. I haven't heard my phone ringing so much from my constituents. They were outraged. What is going on? Why are we doing this? What is happening? This is wrong. Research demonstrates that college diversity courses have a positive impacts on cognitive development in the realms of critical thinking and intellectual engagement since they are exposed to a myriad of different perspectives from different groups. That is the benefit. That helps us to end stereotypes and stigmas. It is not what Texas is about. One of the main reasons thousands of students choose to attend our colleges and universities is because of the diversity. Are we saying we want the African American students on our colleges for football, basketball, and track, but not in our classrooms? Is that the message that we are sending?
Rider 61 is an attempt to do away with all of the wonderful aspects of DEI by claiming that they are unconstitutional. The truth of the matter is that they are initiatives that are working. And in fact, the federal government embraces this. The U.S. Department of Education embraces this. There's been no ruling by a U.S. Supreme Court against it. I encourage my colleagues to think about what we are doing and all of the good DEI has brought to this state, making Texas not one of the fastest growing states in the country, but the ninth largest economy in the world. Those dollars, ladies and gentleman, are the majority of the citizens that happen to be majority minority.
Finally, I just want to say that each and every one of us stands on the shoulders of those who came before us—those who fought so tirelessly and gave their lives to end Jim Crow in this state. With policies like this, it opens up old wounds. It triggers feelings of inferiority and it triggers sentiments of white supremacy. I am asking members to vote against this, to be on the right side of history, to do the right thing, and stand with us in this diverse body. I ask you to support Chairwoman Neave's amendment because our diversity is our strength. Be on the right side of history. Thank you.

REPRESENTATIVE R. LOPEZ: Many of the comments that I was going to make certainly have been said from a statistical perspective. What I'd like to do is give you the second part of what I was going to talk about and that's a personal story.
Some of you have heard me say several dates that many folks remember are the day they got married—which is a smart thing to do—and if they were veterans, the day they enlisted in the service. The day I enlisted in the service was March 23, 1968. For those of you trying to do the math, I'm 73 years old. I was 18 years old at that time and I was getting out of high school—I was a senior in high school. I didn't have a way to go up. I didn't have a way to get out. I had to do something to make sure that I could try to secure my future as best I could, as best as my family could afford. My parents did not go to high school—middle school and elementary school were their levels of accomplishment. I knew I wanted to do better. They wanted me to do better and I knew that my way forward was by getting into the military. When I got out of the military I immediately made sure that I took advantage of every opportunity that I had. Whether it was the G.I. Bill, and today's version of it which is the Hazlewood Act, that takes on a lot of the family members of veterans. Those are the tools that are getting used by minorities to be able to get in to the universities, to be able to get an education, to be able to break the cycle of poverty, to be able to know that there is an opportunity for them to succeed. If we don't give them that, if we don't give them a chance to sit at the table in the classrooms, then we are denying them that opportunity. That's why I stand before you today in support of this amendment. We must do that. We must be able to secure those kinds of—

REPRESENTATIVE GARCIA: Thank you so much for your testimony and sharing your support of this initiative Representative Lopez. I, too, am a veteran and I also remember very distinctly August 15, 1995. I'll never forget that day as long as I live. One thing that was so beautiful about that day was it was the first time this Afro-Latina had freedom in her life. And I'm going to tell you how that's possible.
I grew up in a country where my being culturally ambiguous was a problem. You see, I'm not white enough for white people. I'm not Black enough for Black folks. I'm not Latina enough for Latinos. This is what I've experienced my entire life. I am not a victim. Rest assured, I'm not a victim. I've triumphed greatly. At 19 years old, I got custody of my brother, who is a Black man. When I was leaving Germany, I had a choice of five states to move to—Florida, California, Louisiana, Missouri, Tejas—I thought long and hard. Where would I be accepted? Missouri? No go. Florida? I can pass for Cuban. However, I wanted someplace where my Black brother could grow up proud. And because of that, I chose Texas. I chose a base that I can move to where I, as an ambiguous woman of color, could live proudly with my children. Where I could proudly live with my brother. Where he wouldn't be called the N-word. Where we wouldn't be called other horrible names that have to do with the Hispanic population, the Black population, being biracial. My favorite thing I'm called is a half-breed. Me, as a half-breed, I am not accepted. Period. Me, as a half-breed, represents the other biracial, multiracial people who have chosen Texas as a place to thrive. Imagine my surprise, Mr. Lopez, as the only Afro-Latina woman veteran to serve in this house. To see that our very diversity, our very equity, our very inclusion is being attacked. What do we say to that? Do you, sir, one veteran to another, would you agree that a restriction on DEI initiatives for higher education would negatively impact our military?

R. LOPEZ: It would absolutely negatively impact it. One out of every five veterans is Hispanic. Eleven percent of those veterans are women. Those are the people you are affecting if we move forward with this type of discriminatory practice. Thanks for your comments. I appreciate it.

GARCIA: Thank you, sir. And not only do I stand here as a multiracial individual and a woman-veteran, I also stand here as a mother to two Black men with autism.

R. LOPEZ: And proud of it.

GARCIA: Two college age, Black men with autism. Thank you so much.

REPRESENTATIVE SHERMAN: I stand proudly to support Chairwoman Neave Criado's resolution. I have a speech, but I am just going to speak from what the priest said this morning in his prayer. He referenced in his prayer, Acts 17:28. "For we live and move, for we have our very being from God." And text says that we are all made of one blood. You know, I get it. There are those who are saying that DEI is preferential treatment, that it hurts other groups. Because of DEI they feel that it provides an unfair advantage for certain people. But that's the reason that we have DEI. It's because we do have unfair biases in the marketplace and in everywhere. Scripturally speaking, we're always asking the Lord to answer our prayer, but we fail to answer Jesus' prayer. In John 17:21, he prayed that we would all be one as he and his father are one. You know, we are in some really interesting times when we are saying that we do not even want to have a requirement that everyone be considered.
Last month, the great NFL coach, Tony Dungy, was here and many of you met him and took pictures with him. Coach Dungy said, "I remember when the Rooney Rule was introduced." The Rooney Rule was introduced in 2003 because when they looked at the front office of the NFL and they looked at the coaching staff they found that there was no diversity. They enacted the Rooney Rule in 2003 which simply said you had to interview at least one person of color. You only had to interview one person. The first year, over 20 years ago, when the Rooney Rule was introduced we had no change. It took time and now we have more diversity. But DEI is about providing merit opportunities for individuals that typically far exceed the best of the best. So we're not talking about a handout—we're simply talking about being righteous. You know, we have a history—and I'm not talking about as a country, I'm talking about biblically. In Exodus 12:38, the Bible says that when God led the children of Israel out of Egypt, he led them out—not only the children of Israel, but it was a mixed multitude. It was a mixed multitude. And when we get to Numbers 12:1, we find that there is a problem because Moses is married to a black woman, a Kushite.
There are people who have a problem with diversity. I implore you. You know since I've been here it's been really different from the local level where we talk to each other and we can change hearts and minds. All we need is 12. Twelve republicans to stand with us—that DEI is important, that it is important that we have diversity. We teach our children that it's important that they have a balanced meal. They need to have diversity on their plate. And God has created an ecosystem that is diverse. It would not be sustainable.

REYNOLDS: I agree with what your sentiments are. You've referenced quite a few scriptures, are you familiar with Proverbs 31:89?

SHERMAN: I am not exactly familiar.

REYNOLDS: That scripture says to speak out for the one who cannot speak, for the rights of those who are doomed. Speak out, judge fairly, and defend the rights of oppressed and needy people. Do you think that we should apply that scripture to diversity, equity, and inclusion? To minorities and the underrepresented? Isn't that what God called us to do in Proverbs 31:89?

SHERMAN: Representative Reynolds, you are exactly right. Just as Micah 6:8 tells us that we should love justice, we should be looking for righteousness.

REYNOLDS: And Representative Sherman, are you aware that the Supreme Court has not ruled diversity, equity, and inclusion as unconstitutional? Are you aware of that?

SHERMAN: Yes.

REYNOLDS: Are you aware that Texas has more African Americans than any other state in the United States of America?

SHERMAN: Approximately 4 million, sir.

REYNOLDS: Are you aware that based on the 2020 census that African Americans, Hispanics, and Asians make up a majority of the population of the State of Texas?

SHERMAN: Yes, sir.

REYNOLDS: And are you aware that if we go forward without this amendment—if Rider 61 gets included in our budget—are you aware of the stigma that that is going to have on the majority of the citizens in this state?

SHERMAN: I am aware that it is grave, but I don't believe any of us realize the ramifications that this will have, economically speaking.

REYNOLDS: What kind of message would this amendment send to the African American and Hispanic communities in this state?

SHERMAN: It clearly sends the message that whatever my hiring practices are, I want it to be universal.

REYNOLDS: And are you aware of any college or university that has said that "Hey, there's a problem with diversity, equity, and inclusion in this state. You guys need to remedy that"—have you heard of any problem of that sort from any university in this state?

SHERMAN: No, sir, I have the only four year state college in my district in Dallas and they are one of the most diverse universities.

REYNOLDS: Thank you, Representative Sherman. I appreciate Chairwoman Victoria Neave for bringing this amendment.

REPRESENTATIVE BOWERS: I'd just like to ask you a few questions because this issue really does hit home for me. Do you believe it is important that our diverse students are able to see themselves in their professors, faculty, and staff?

SHERMAN: Do I believe that they're able to see?

BOWERS: That they should be able to.

SHERMAN: Absolutely. It's proven that children perform better when they see someone who looks like them.

BOWERS: And do you believe that DEI initiatives can help students who are the first in their family to attend college, who are disproportionately going to be students of color, feel more at home in their new environment?

SHERMAN: Yes.

BOWERS: Were you aware that my daughter, Jade Bowers, is in the process of choosing where she will go to medical school?

SHERMAN: I am.

BOWERS: Thank you. We are very proud of her, but were you aware even at some of the most prestigious institutions that she's been accepted to she still has the concerns of if she will get to learn from people that look like her and have life-shared experiences with her?

SHERMAN: Yes.

BOWERS: Do you think that the quality of education can be affected by feeling accepted where you are?

SHERMAN: Absolutely.

BOWERS: Thank you so much for your time. I just had an experience of having to ask those very questions to those in places of making decisions at higher learning.

REPRESENTATIVE MANUEL: Representative, are we still currently living under the Voting Rights Act of 1964 here in Texas?

SHERMAN: These are interesting times, sir.

MANUEL: Well, are we still under the law that says that because of past racism that is still in this state that we have to have an electorate that is diverse, giving minorities an opportunity to have representatives that look like them here in the body?

SHERMAN: Yes.

MANUEL: So don't you find it interesting that we still have to live under a federal law that says we have to be diverse because there is racism still in the state, but yet we're getting rid of diversity here in the state while the federal government says there are still problems of racism here in the State of Texas and in the south?

SHERMAN: Yes, very much so.

REPRESENTATIVE ZWIENER: First, I want to address my fellow white folks in the room. We all know that the core reason behind attacks on diversity, equity, and inclusion programs is because there is a fear that if people of color are more successful that white people will be less successful. That is the core root of these attacks and y'all, that's a lie. We are stronger together. We are stronger if everyone rises together. And so I want to challenge each of y'all to challenge those fears in yourself and in your own community so that we can be stronger as Texans.
Second, I want to address y'all as a current student in a public university here in Texas. There's a lot of talk that issues with inadequate representation are in the past, but I sit at The University of Texas School of Law right now and those issues of representation are still present every day. If I had been able to take a full load of classes my first year, I would have had six white professors and two non-white professors. Members, we all know that does not look like Texas. Every single one of us knows that. And that is in a school that has had the freedom to try to recruit diverse professors that look like the students they teach. And those challenges still exist in the student body, as well. There are more white men named Jack in my section at The University of Texas than Black men. These problems still exist today. I ask you not to sweep them under the rug and instead support this amendment so that my classmates who have moved here to attend law school here in Texas don't regret their choice. Because that's the conversation I'm hearing in the halls at The University of Texas right now. People are wondering why they came here in a state that is attacking the diverse members of our student body and making it harder to recruit faculty that truly represent them. So members, I ask you to support Representative Neave's amendment.

REPRESENTATIVE J. JONES: Hay estudiantes en Tejas que no hablan ni entiendan inglés, pero ellos necesitan ayuda aprender inglés. Y también, aprendí español en las escuelas públicas. Now, for people who don't understand me, there are people that don't speak English and when they hear English spoken they feel just like you did. And it is important that public universities and schools teach all people here in Texas. I learned Spanish—I'm from the 'hood, I'm not Hispanic—but the public schools in this state taught me to speak Spanish. And we owe the same thing to immigrants. But the thing that makes me really sad about all of this is when we think of DEI people focus on race—the Black race, the Hispanic race—when the truth is, there are a lot of other diversities that need help.
I'll tell you, my father went to Vietnam. When my father came back from Vietnam, there weren't opportunities for him as a traumatized veteran. They call it PTSD. I believe my dad had PTSD. And my dad came back after serving his country and fighting for our freedom and he blew his brains out because there were not opportunities for him. That's important. So DEI is not just about Black or brown. I have a friend who has two children with autism who need help in school. And with that help in school they can be successful. And we have an opportunity—I think we actually have an obligation—to provide reasonable accommodations to people who need help like that because we should not sweep away people who have autism. I also think that there are people who are not as mobile as us, who are in wheelchairs. They need reasonable accommodations to be able to roll through the halls of our universities and our educational schools so that they can be law-abiding, productive, educated citizens in this great State of Texas. I have a cousin who is deaf. Schools have an obligation to teach him ASL so that he can communicate. Because I know for a fact that my cousin was extremely upset—extremely upset—that we couldn't speak to him to where he could understand because he could not always read lips. So everybody is not—I mean, I don't even know what perfect is. Everybody does not speak English. And DEI has a lot to do with—the fear of it—is immigrants that come from the southern border. I don't hear people complaining about people coming from the northern border or the people coming from European borders that don't speak English—that speak Italian, French, and all those other romance languages. So we have an obligation to educate people who come here. And I stand with Chairwoman Neave Criado with this amendment because racism is alive and kicking. And people who are older need help. They need hearing aids when they're learning. So all I'm asking for you to do is please see past the race that many people see and understand that diversity comes in really different shapes, sizes, and capabilities. And if we provide an education to everyone, then we are more likely to have Texans who are productive contributors to this society and it will create generational wealth and education. So whatever I need to do to be supportive of you Chairwoman, I'll absolutely do it.

REPRESENTATIVE VANDEAVER: I appreciate the spirited discussion on this amendment. However, I oppose the amendment and ask you to vote no.

Floor Packet Page No. 280

Amend CSHB 1 as follows:
(1)  On page IV-27 in the General Land Office and Veterans Land Board bill pattern, reduce appropriations from general revenue in Strategy B.1.1, Coastal Management, by $3,000,000 in fiscal year 2024.
(2)  On page IV-32, amend Rider 22. Gulf Coast Protection District (GCPD).
(a)  The General Land Office and Veterans Land Board (GLO) shall use $200,000,000 in general revenue appropriated in fiscal year 2024 in Strategy B.1.1, Coastal Management, for the purpose of making a grant to the Gulf Coast Protection District (GCPD) through a cooperative agreement in the 2024-25 biennium. The GLO shall ensure that no more than 5.0 percent of this grant funding is expended by the GCPD for the purposes of administrative and salary expenses. The disbursement of this grant shall occur only if the terms of the agreement require the grantee, GCPD, to, at minimum:
(1)  Provide a report of budgeted and expended grant amounts by project or activity areas on a semi-annual basis as defined by the GLO;
(2)  Provide timelines for completion of projects on a semi-annual basis as defined by the GLO; and
(3)  Any other reasonable term deemed prudent by the GLO.
(b)  The GLO shall use $[300,000,000]299,989,236 in general revenue in fiscal year 2024 in Strategy B.1.1, Coastal Management, solely for the purpose of making an additional grant to the GCPD through a cooperative agreement during the 2024-25 biennium to provide state matching funds to meet federal requirements for studies and projects planned to be conducted in the state by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The appropriation of state matching funds is contingent upon USACE requesting payments to cover the 35.0 percent non-federal cost share which may include the non-federal sponsor's real estate and in-kind work costs. The appropriation of state matching funds is also contingent upon the terms of the agreement requiring the grantee, GCPD, to report the same information detailed above in Subsection (a)(1) through (a)(3).
(c)  Any related unobligated and unexpended balances remaining as of August 31, 2024, are appropriated for the same purpose for the fiscal year beginning September 1, 2024.
(d)  In addition to amounts appropriated above, any unobligated and unexpended balances for the Gulf Coast Protection District remaining from 2022-23 appropriations in Strategy B.1.1, Coastal Management, as of August 31, 2023, are appropriated for the fiscal year beginning on September 1, 2023, (estimated to be $0) in the same strategy for the purpose of funding GCPD expenses associated with implementing the Sabine to Galveston and Coastal Texas storm surge protection measures.

Permission to meet was granted.

COMMITTEE MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT

At 5:47 p.m., the following committee meeting was announced:

Calendars, 6:30 p.m. today, 1W.14, for a formal meeting, to set Tuesday's calendar.

CSHB 1 - (consideration continued)

Amendment No. 62

Representative Kacal offered the following amendment to CSHB 1:

Floor Packet Page No. 289

Amend CSHB 1 (house committee report) in Article V of the bill, following the appropriations to the Department of Criminal Justice, in Rider 48, Payments to District Clerks (page V-20), as follows:
(1)  Strike "four or more" and substitute "four, five, or six".
(2)  Between "installments." and "The", insert "District clerks in counties with seven or more TDCJ operational correctional facilities are to be allocated, during each fiscal year of the biennium, an amount not to exceed $84,000 to be allocated in equal monthly installments."

Amendment No. 62 was adopted.

Amendment No. 63

Representative Cain offered the following amendment to CSHB 1:

Floor Packet Page No. 290

Amend CSHB 1 (house committee report) by adding the following appropriately numbered rider following the Article V appropriations to the Department of Criminal Justice:
____. Prohibition on Use of Appropriations for Certain Surgeries. To the extent authorized under general law, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice may not use funds appropriated by this Act to provide to an inmate any surgery related to sex reassignment or gender identity transitioning.

Amendment No. 63 - Point of Order

Representative Wu raised a point of order against further consideration of Amendment No. 63 under Rule 8, Section 4, of the House Rules.

(C.J. Harris in the chair)

The speaker sustained the point of order, announcing his decision to the house as follows:

Mr. Wu raises a point of order against further consideration of the Cain Amendment (Amendment No. 63) under Rule 8, Section 4, on the grounds that the amendment changes general law.
The amendment is similar to the amendment offered by Mr. Cain in the 86th Legislature and would bar the department from using appropriated funds for performing certain elective surgeries on inmates. The chair sustained a point of order against the amendment in 2019. 86 H. Jour. 1066-1067 (2019).
Mr. Cain argues that this amendment is different because it is effective only "[t]o the extent authorized by general law." However, it is well-settled that a rider is invalid if, absent any prefatory language, it is clear that the rider is designed to impose duties that may be imposed only by general law. See Atty. Gen. Nos. MW-585 (1982); JM-1018 (1989). Thus, the amendment is essentially the same as the amendment previously ruled out.
Accordingly, the point of order is well-taken and sustained.

The ruling precluded further consideration of Amendment No. 63.

Amendment No. 64

Representative V. Jones offered the following amendment to CSHB 1:

Floor Packet Page No. 292

Strike "a minimum of 200 beds" and replace it with "no more than 48 beds per facility".

Amendment No. 65 was adopted.

Amendment No. 66

Representative Wilson offered the following amendment to CSHB 1:

Floor Packet Page No. 330

Amend CSHB 1 as follows:
(1)  On page VI-23 of the bill pattern for the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, amend the following new rider:
21.  Aggregate Operations. Amounts appropriated above in Strategy C.1.1, Field Inspections and Complaint Response, to the Commission on Environmental Quality shall be used to adopt and make accessible on the commission's Internet website best management practices for all aspects of aggregate production operations regarding nuisance issues relating to dust, noise, and light, as well as water use, water storage, and blasting to minimize disruption to surrounding areas, and to conduct aerial observations at least twice per fiscal year to ensure enforcement of existing statutes and rules relating to aggregate operations.

Amend Amendment No. 66 by Wilson to CSHB 1 (page 330, prefiled amendments packet) by striking "oversight of aggregate mining." and substituting "development of the best management practices described in this rider. Unless otherwise provided by law, the best management practices are nonbinding.".

(b)  Not later than December 1, 2024, the commission shall submit to the governor, lieutenant governor, and speaker of the house of representatives a report that includes the findings of the study and any recommendations for legislative or other action. The report must include recommendations for legislative or regulatory changes and potential economic incentive programs to support the uranium mining industry in this state.

Amendment No. 69
