AUSTIN — The new district map for State Board of Education voters is headed to Gov. Rick Perry's desk.
The Texas House approved Senate changes to the new voting map Thursday. Once Perry receives it, he can sign it into law or veto the new plan.
Critics say the vote on the map for the 15-member board just maintains the status quo without taking into account the huge influx of minority growth over the past decade.
They say the map doesn't meet the standards of the Voting Rights Act and want another Hispanic to be elected to the board.
The board sets curriculum standards for Texas classrooms and oversees the state's endowment fund for public schools.
