From Our Readers...
Dear Comptroller Strayhorn:
Thank you so much writing your insightful article, "The Graduate...Eventually," in the June 2004 edition of Fiscal Notes.
B-on-Time is one of the most important reforms of the Texas higher education system, but as your article addressed, there are many challenges ahead as we seek to fully fund the program despite future budget shortfalls. Legislators must continue to increase the affordability and accessibility of higher education and to motivate students to excel.
I look forward to continuing to work with you on the B-on-Time loan program. Feel free to contact me or my staff whenever we may be of assistance.
Very truly yours,
State Senator, District 21
