Interstate Compact4 Years of ImplementationS.B. No. 90

Spring, 2009

Texas adopted the Interstate CompactEasy vote and passageFiscal Note was neutral

Language from the bill analysis: The bill would include Texas in the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children in order to mitigate the logistical challenges of frequent relocations such as records transfer, grade and course placement, and differences in graduation requirements among the states. The bill would require the Governor to appoint a Compact Commissioner to administer the state's involvement and attend meetings of the national organization to which the state would also be required to provide financial support for operational expenses.No significant fiscal impact is anticipated.
