So-called ‘Doggett Amendement’ Repealed

The Austin American Statesman is reporting this afternoon that the federal budget compromise bill agreed to over the weekend will repeal the so-called ‘Doggett Amendment’.

Last summer, Texas Democratic Congressman Lloyd Doggett spearheaded an effort to withhold $830 million dollars in federal education funding from the state of Texas because state leaders could not, and would not, agree to make the $830 million dollars a permanent part of education funding in the state budget.

In an e-mail today, Doggett stated that the repeal of his amendment is an unwise concession made to Republicans.  Meanwhile, Texas U.S. Senator John Cornyn welcomed the news of the repeal of the Doggett Amendment and said critical federal education funding has been restored to the state.
