86th Session Accomplishments

On one of the last days of session, both chambers passed House Bill 3, the school finance reform bill. This bill includes $6.5 billion for public education, while increasing the state share of education from 38 percent to 45 percent. This includes raising the base funding per student from $5,140 to $6,160 per student. It raises the minimum salary schedule for employees, and provides a pay increase of, on average, $4000 for classroom teachers, counselors, librarians and nurses. It fully funds Pre-K for the states most needy children, and provides additional funding for dropouts and students in residential treatment centers. It also reduces recapture payments by school districts, and lowers school property tax rates eight cents statewide in 2020 and 13 cents in 2021, on average. I am proud to be a part of a Legislature that has put our students first and ensuring they are provided the education they deserve and need.

I remember the headlines and radio reports.

Thank you for reminding us!!

My Dad joined the NAVY in February 1942, age 17 - my grandmother almost divorced my grandfather for signing the document allowing him to join. I am sure there were many other young men that followed the call to protect our country. RIP, Daddy (1925 - 1976)❤️

Thank you, I remember it well.

Molly and I got to take the Admiral's tour of Pearl while on my R&R from RVN. The U.S.S. Arizona was the highlight of the tour, but would bring tears to your eyes.
