Preschool funding lawsuit thrown out of court

Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - A lawsuit over a proposed one-cent tax hike for funding preschools was thrown out of court.

In September, the Early To Rise campaign filed a lawsuit after Harris County Judge Ed Emmett refused to put the group on the November ballots.

The proposal would have raised property taxes in Harris County to pay for a private early childhood education program.
