Gov. Rick Perry held a press conference this afternoon to sign House Bill (HB) 5 into law. The bill's author, House Public Education Committee Chairman Rep. Jimmie Don Aycock (R-Killeen), joined Perry for the ceremony. Sen. Education Committee Chairman Sen. Dan Patrick (R-Houston) and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst were also present. HB 5 reduces the number of standardized tests required to graduate and grants students and schools more flexibility in graduation requirements.
