Texas Freedom Network President Kathy Miller issued the following statement on the end of the 79th Legislature today.

"Texans clearly set key priorities for this Legislature, especially dealing with crises in school funding and children’s health care. But lawmakers wasted time on distractions like sexy cheerleaders, scapegoating gay Texans and pushing vouchers. Now three times in three years they have failed to improve the way we pay for our public schools. Next year we’ll find out if politics has a three-strikes rule."
