Dear Members of MRTA:

 

At 6 PM next Friday, May 18th, the Legislative Session ends!  It is very important that we remain vigilant.  I am asking each of you to please check your email twice a day next week! 

 

The Senate has adjourned for the week ending Thursday, May 11, 2012.  NO ACTION WAS TAKEN ON SCS/SB/842 -PSRS/PEERS Board of Trustee Takeover, SS/SCS/SB/806 - Teacher Tenure OR HCS/HB - 1740 - Vouchers, Teacher Tenure, Charter School Expansion, etc.

  

It is essential that MRTA members stay tuned as HCS/HB - 1526 (dealing with school personnel and tenure) was narrowly passed by the House and is now headed to the Senate.  (CLICK HERE FOR VOTING RECORD) This bill could very easily become the vehicle for the issues listed above.  The defeat of SCS/SB - 842 is our #1 priority because the retiree is the #1 priority at MRTA!  

 

Thank you for your hard work in contacting your Senators.  So far, so good.  Please stay tuned.
