Contact Your Delegates TODAY: Support the Senate Budget Package
The State Senate passed a budget package last week that included full funding for education (click here to learn more about the major issues in education this session). While the Senate Budget Package did include a provision to shift half of the teacher’s pension costs from the state to the counties, a compromise was reached to shift the cost over a four-year period and included additional funding to blunt the impact to counties with lower wealth. The budget plan also includes a stronger Maintenance of Effort (MOE) law that holds counties accountable for fully funding education.
