KXAN | The Texas House of Representatives signed off Thursday on a minor change the Senate made to House Bill 3908, initially introduced by Republican Rep. Terry Wilson of Georgetown. The legislation is now bound for Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk, where he’s expected to sign it into law.
It would require every school district in Texas to teach their students in sixth through 12th grades each year about preventing fentanyl abuse and making them aware of its deadly effects. It’s officially called Tucker’s Law because Turner’s son, Tucker, died at the family’s Leander home in 2021 from a fentanyl overdose.
“When I describe Tucker, I say he’s bigger than this Earth,” Turner said. “He sure is, and he’s continuing to be.”
