Republicans Move Quick on Education

We mentioned we were optimistic about the new legislature moving quick to address education.   And we already have something to report.  Senators Dave Thompson, Gen Olson, David Hann, Paul Gazelka and Dan Hall have introduced Senate File 0056.  This bill provides the following;

*Removing the safe schools levy set aside requirement for costs associated with licensed school counselors, psychologists, nurses(R.N.), and chemical dependency counselors

* Imposing a statewide school district and charter school employee salary freeze

* Repealing reserved revenue for staff development and school district contract deadline and penalty

Well this a decent start, especially the removing the pro-union deadline to reach a contract agreement.  Good luck to these senators on this bill.  We will continue to give legislative updates as often as we can.
