State Representative Drew Darby spoke to Chamber of Commerce members at The Cactus Hotel.
Darby, who represents San Angelo and the Concho Valley in Austin talked about the recent special session.
He says state lawmakers agreed to several plans to improve child foster care services in Texas along with education of students at all levels.
“Both K-12 and higher ed., such as Angelo State University. I think that’s where we need to continue to make sure that we are putting forth the best educational experience that our children can have because that’s really the future of Texas,” said Darby.
Representative Darby also commended Governor Abbott and the relief efforts happening in the Texas gulf coast communities that were devastated by hurricane Harvey.
