UT Student Govt. Backs Texas Legislation

The student government at the University of Texas, Austin has passed a resolution supporting the Texas House bill that seeks greater protection for communications involving the University ombuds. According to a student representative, the action was taken at the request of the UT Office of the Ombudsperson. "They felt it was important to help them have this confidentiality." The resolution and other efforts concerning Texas legislative reforms remain the focus of the new student government, which took office April 15. (Daily Texan.)
