TYC board to resign
Sen. Chris Harris, citing a statement issued from Rick Perry’s office, announced to the joint legislative committee investigating TYC that the troubled agency’s board will resign.
The news was met with a round of applause in the hearing room.
“Good job, Senator Harris,” commented Sen. John Whitmire. Harris won unanimous passage in the Senate today of a bill requiring the board’s resignation. That bill was opposed by the governor’s office.
