New science textbooks face budget snag

The $1.4 billion price tag for new science textbooks and other materials has been causing sticker shock among state officials bracing for the upcoming budget shortfall.  So, the State Board of Education on Tuesday must decide whether to push ahead despite the cost or delay the textbooks for at least a year to save the state money in the 2012-13 budget.  Legislators are anticipating a budget shortfall of $15 billion to $18 billion when they return to Austin in January to write the next two-year budget.
