Some Districts already counting on federal cash

Read Lisa Schencker's article at http://www.sltrib.com/

"Governor Herbert sent the state's application for the $101 million to the feds on Tuesday. The money is part of a federal $10 billion Education Jobs program meant to help save teaching jobs this school year."

Because the state legislature needs to have a special session (we are hoping for October) to approve the money, you need to contact your legislator and tell them to let the money flow to the districts to help bridge the gaps in the budget. You can find your legislator by going to the UEA website (Under the Dome) at http://www.utea.org/ or go to the UniServ website http://www.ogdenweber.org/ and click on "Political Action".

Thanks Rick
