Redefining Chicano Socio-Political Discourse...: HB2 Passes

Redefining Chicano Socio-Political Discourse...: HB2 Passes: "According to our friend and bloggin' State Rep. Aaron Pe�a, the Texas House has just passed HB2 on its 3rd reading by a vote of 77-70. Mr. Pe�a gave bit of a play-by-play. HB2 was the Republican plan for an 'education overhaul.'

Earlier in the evening, the Democratic Plan for school finance was defeated by ONE VOTE. That's right! Tom Craddick was the deciding vote after 12, mostly central Texas, Republicans crossed the aisle and voted for the plan. All of the Democrats did what they were supposed to do and supported the plan."
