Media interest in higher education frequently shifted throughout the Texas Legislature’s 84th regular session, from reforms concerning campus carry to those on funding veterans’ education and reintroducing tuition limits. Yet in the end, almost none of the many reforms proposed for improving higher-education quality, affordability, or transparency lived to reach the governor’s desk. By far the most significant piece of higher-education legislation passed was HB 100, which would authorize $3.1 billion in tuition revenue bonds for campus construction projects.
