DCCCD urges the Texas Legislature to continue its commitment to funding community college group health-care insurance.
The 82nd Legislature should continue its historical commitment of funding community college group health-care insurance based on employee eligibility. The critical agreement reached last session between the Legislature, the Governor’s office and community colleges must be preserved in the General Appropriations Act. The certainty this covenant has provided allows community colleges to hire and retain talented and dedicated faculty and staff to serve the growing number of Texans seeking educational opportunities.
