SB 773 – Close to the Finish Line

SB 773, the legislation that extends the telecommunications discounts until 2016 for schools (K-20), libraries, and hospitals passed both chambers of the Texas Legislature and is now on the way to the Governor’s desk for his signature.  Although we had pushed to extend the date to 2024, we celebrate that schools won’t have to worry about their telecommunication costs rising significantly as they deal with the ensuing budget crises.
