Statement on Dade Phelan Securing Votes for Re-Election as Speaker of the House

AUSTIN – The Texas Federation for Children (TFC) today released a statement on Dade Phelan securing enough votes to ensure his re-election as Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives.

The Texas Federation for Children released the following statement:
“Today, the members of the Texas House Republican Caucus endorsed Speaker Dade Phelan for re-election as Speaker. In his first session, Speaker Phelan presided over one of the most successful conservative legislative sessions in Texas history. In particular, Phelan’s appointment of Rep. Harold Dutton as the Chair of the House Public Education Committee helped shepherd through two important education reform victories:
– The protection of learning pods from over regulation by state and local governments, and;

– The passage of the Supplemental Special Education Services program which provided tens of thousands of special needs students with $1500 grants to purchase the special education services they needed to get caught up during and after COVID. 
TFC is looking forward to another session of Speaker Phelan’s conservative leadership.”
