Senator Shapiro Indicates Support for Educational Technology Funding

The Texas Capitol School House was Monday at the capitol.  I wasn’t there, but it was reported that in Senator Shapiro’s opening remarks, she mentioned her support of the Technology Allotment.
The Senate Finance committee also met on Monday.  After the meeting, Senator Shapiro was interviewed by some reporters. She mentioned the Technology Allotment in her response to their questions.  See the last paragraph of this blog post by Robert T. Garrett from the Dallas Morning News.
Senator Shapiro is the chair of the Senate Education Committee.  This committee will hold its first meeting today at 10:00 AM.  It is being broadcast live.
UPDATE: You can watch the recording of the meeting here.
