A state representative is working on a bill that would realign Angelo State University with Texas Tech.
Rep. Drew Darby, R-San Angelo, said a delegation of Angelo State boosters met with Governor Rick Perry this week to express their desire that the school be taken out of the Texas State University System.
Darby declined to say when he would submit the bill. The deadline is March 7.
Tech already has satellite campuses in Abilene, Amarillo, El Paso and Junction.
Angelo State has 6,200 students and 1,350 workers. University officials hope to have 10,000 students by 2028.
