Dear MRTA Unit Legislative Chairpersons:
You may or may not have been contacted by your Regional Legislative Chair or Unit President about the 2013 MRTA Legislative Day to be held February 12, or about the 2013 Legislative Platform. This email is intended to make sure you have the information.
2013 Legislative Session
The 2013 Legislative Session begins tomorrow. Click here for the 2013 MRTA Legislative Platform. It is that time of year to pay close attention to communications from the MRTA office and me, your Executive Director. It is becoming very clear that there will be many education issues that will require an "MRTA Call to Action."
As of today, we do not have the contact information of the Missouri General Assembly as this is a brand new House and Senate. We will provide them to you as soon as possible. Please check the MRTA website frequently for updates www.mrta.org
. You can also follow us on Facebook for updates. Please have your calling lists and email distribution lists updated and ready to go for our "MRTA Calls to Action."
