Texas Education Needs an Inspector General

That’s what Houston-area Republican state senator says the Texas Education Agency is saying, and has filed a bill to create the office.

Senator Paul Bettencourt, of Houston, filed Senate Bill 933 because he says the TEA is one of the few major state agencies without an office of Inspector General.

He says 25-percent of the state budget goes to public education, and it requires proper oversight.

A similar bill Bettencourt filed in the previous legislative session didn't come up for a vote in the House.
