AUSTIN, TEXAS--Texas House representative Jimmie Don Aycock  (R-Killeen ) commended curious tactics used by TAMSA (Texans Advocating for Meaningful Student Assessment) in passing House Bill 5 (HB 5) during the 83rd Legislative Session. He told an audience at this week's SXSWedu 2014 conference held in Austin about the grassroots group's behind-the-scenes actions praising them as savvy "political trades" and deals made to influence legislation.
