The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board released several priorities for lawmakers to consider of the 2013 legislative session. Among major issues is a proposal to expand access To TEXAS Grants. The THECB proposes offering institutions more flexibility so more students can tap into TEXAS Grants.
THECB states that the number of students eligible for the programs have increased 88 percent over the last five years and the state needs to invest about $1.4B to cover all eligible students over the next two years.
