TSS continues to watch HB745 (Rep. Haston) and its Senate counterpart SB1135 (Sen. White). Both will be heard in the Senate Finance Committee today, April 27, and the House Finance Subcommittee on Wednesday, April 28. The TSS-supported Achievement School District bill, HB74, passed the House on Monday by a vote of 62-28-1. The Senate companion will be heard in the Senate Finance Committee today. The administration’s BEP Hold Harmless legislation, HB777, has been scheduled for a House vote on Wednesday, while the Senate companion awaits scheduling on the Senate floor. Finally, we are thrilled to announce that the governor signed the TSS-supported SEM Advancement Act into law last week.
