Achievement School District SB1718 fails on point of order

As explained in this earlier post, SB1718 would have established a statewide Achievement School District to oversee the most troubled schools in Texas. Unfortunately, the bill failed in the House on a point of order filed by Rep. Armando Walle (D-Houston). (Sen. Royce West (D-Dallas) moved to amend HB2836 to include a provision for an Achievement School District, but that effort has failed.)
