The Deseret News reported that the Senate Republican Caucus voted to support a $1 increase in cigarette taxes and a 21 Million Dollar cut in public education to pay for other state needs. This would be on top of the lack of funding for the new 11,000 students who will be entering our schools in the fall. A large portion of the 21,000,000 will go to Higher Ed.
SB 77, another anti-UEA bill that would restrict association leave is in the House of Representatives and we need you to email your representative and tell them to vote no. The Supt.'s association and School Boards oppose this bill and see it as a "local control" issue.
