As Session Begins To Come To A Close, Contacts Needed On School Bond Proposal

As the final weeks of the 2017 legislative session at the General Assembly approaches, contacts are needed to help House Bill 866 gain further hearing and approval. The legislation would put a $1.9 billion statewide school construction bond before voters on the 2018 ballot. As there as not been a statewide school construction bond since 1996, there is multi billion dollars of school construction needs across the state.  The bond as proposed in House Bill 866 will provide a significant infusion of one-time funds to help LEAs begin to address some of these critical needs. The legislation has passed the House Education K-12 Committee and now heads to the House Finance Committee. Please contact members of the House Finance Committee and ask them to support this legislation.
