Funding for higher education is a hot topic going into the next legislative session. There have been talks in 2016 of cutting tuition set-asides and possibly cutting parts of the Hazelwood Act. The Texas Tribune's Matthew Watkins moderates a discussion on funding higher education Saturday with current state representative Helen Giddings, former state representative Dan Branch, UT-Austin president Gregory Fenves, state senator Kel Seliger and Robert Duncan, chancellor of the Texas Tech University system.
