SB 834: House Approval as a Bad Bill Moves Forward

It's time for everyone to contact the Governor and ask him to veto SB 834.

Senate Bill 834 passed the House with a vote of 60-39. The bill is now headed back to the Senate. Senators have the option of accepting the amendments made in the house or rejecting the changes and sending the bill to conference. If the changes are accepted, the bill will head to the Governor's desk. We believe the Senators will accept the changes and the bill could be on the Governor's desk as early as next week. We need you to click here and tell the Governor to veto SB 834. Governor Henry has been a true champion of education. He is our ally not our enemy.

Only one Republican voted in the best interests of kids, teachers and communities--Representative Lisa Billy. Please contact Representative Billy and thank her for her courage to do what was and is right.
