ABSTRACT
The author comments on the success of the legislators from North Texas in advancing higher education initiatives that would include more financial aid dollars and the opportunity to create more top-tier research universities in Texas in the face of tough economic times. She believes that the signing into law of the student-approved athletics fee to fund a new stadium and the approval of a move to creating the region's first public law school will lead to a brighter future for all of Texas.
