On Slow Day One VEA Bill Is Fast-Tracked

This was the slowest day of this session in terms of legislative work.  Crossover requires the committee staff to shift gears to prepare for the bills from the other chamber, and the money committees are hard at work behind the scenes working to complete their proposed budgets.

However, the House Education Committee did report Senator Favola’s SB 43 on a unanimous vote.  This is the bill that gives teachers five more days to contest a dismissal notice.

Former State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Williams C. Bosher, presented the 2014 Commonwealth Education Poll to the Education Committee.  You might want to check it out.
