We knew that Rep. Villarreal and his four "teammates" on the House subcommittee for the state education budget have been hard at work in non-stop hearings, but could they be one of the best teams ever? 

The Austin American-Statesman recently reported that the subcommittee chair - or, point guard - compared the talent assembled on the committee to the "Dream Team."  David Robinson, Michael Jordan and the rest of the original Dream Team may have been stars on the basketball court, but Rep. Villarreal and the rest of the subcommittee could show them a thing or two about expanding financial aid for college students and making smart state investments in education!
