Empower Texans, a nonprofit that promotes financial stewardship in government, has praised the Victoria school district for its stable financial outlook.

The group picked up on the story after a report from Texas Watchdog that also gave props to the district for its ability to weather state spending cuts to education.

"No layoffs, increased revenues and little whining about the state cutbacks," the story reads.
