Lee Claycomb (West Haven) and Christine Tea (Mt. Ogden) visited the legislature Friday, Feb. 6. They met with UEA staff and leadership for a quick tutorial in lobbying. They then met with Rep. Neil Hansen (Ogden) who took them into the House chamber and gave them a short experience on the legislative floor. Lee met with Rep. Buttars concerning his bill on licensure (SB 48). Both educators were able to sit in the gallery and listen to debate. During lunch we met with UEA and National Board Certified teachers and discussed our day and important legislation.
It was a good experience and we hope others will take advantage of the opportunity.
Thanks for reading. Rick
