LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT: HELP CONVINCE STATE POLITICIANS TO VOTE FOR PROPER EDUCATION FUNDING DURING NEXT WEEK'S SPECIAL SESSION
As you probably know, both the Washington State House and Senate have finished the current legislative session without completing the duty to finalize the State budget. Governor Inslee has required Senators and Representatives to return to Olympia next week for a special session to finish the job. This gives parents and educators one last chance to convince politicians to vote for students and their education.
Currently, the House and Senate each has a bill they are proposing for education funding. The Washington PTA supports any bill that would fully meet the States' constitutional requirements to fund Basic Education as mandated by the Supreme Court. The House bill most closely meets that requirement at this time. Please visit the Washington State PTA website to read an overview of both bills and send a pre-writted letter (which you can edit if you choose, and is located at the bottom of the site's page) to state politicians urging them to find a resolution on education funding next week. When you complete the contact portion of the message tool, the WSPTA automatically imports your district's senator and respresentatives' contact information so that you don't have to look it up.
Thanks for your help in this important matter,
Angie Masco & Tanea Stephens, Queen Anne Elementary Legislative Co-Chairs
