TYLER - A new political action committee is joining forces with Grassroots America to vote no on the nearly $90 million T.I.S.D. bond. They're called "Why Relocate Rice" and the group, created this week, is gaining support from Grassroots America. The group, according to members, started when they found out Rice Elementary could be relocated. Tyler school officials says they haven't decided to move Rice yet, they say that can be done after the election but, the group Why Relocate Rice says that's the problem.
T.I.S.D. school officials say once the bond election is over, they plan on setting up a meeting with residents on what to do with the current Rice Elementary School.
