Liz sent this out earlier. This is important. These are things that will impact you and we should speak up before it becomes something to complain about.


Legislative Alert - SB 313


Late yesterday afternoon, the Senate Fiscal Oversight Committee voted 3-2 to approve SB 313. As noted before, SB 313 creates a voucher program that will take money away from public schools. In addition, a number of amendments have been added which further hurt public education in a number of ways. It is imperative that public school supporters, including Superintendents, Board members, teachers, parents and patrons contact their local senators to voice strong opposition to this legislation. With the approval from the Fiscal Oversight Committee, the bill may now come before the full Senate for a final vote. You can read the full bill by accessing the link https://www.mo.gov/government/legislative-branch/ and searching under Senate, then bills typing in SB 313.
