HB 2 and HB 67 to House Floor

HB 67 (Representative Stewart), the bill that increases the base pay for the 3-Tiered System to $40,000, $50,000, and $60,000 over the next five years, just passed through the House Appropriations and Finance Committee – UNANIMOUSLY!

The reason this passed unanimously: lawmakers are listening to educators!

HB 2 and HB 67 head to the floor tomorrow!

Take action! Contact your State Representative and tell them “Pass HB67 and HB2 with no amendments!"

Legislative Update 1/23/2014 - HB 67 Moves Forward

Today HB 67 was ruled germane which means it will move forward for consideration in the House. HB 67 raises the minimum salary levels in the three-tier licensure system by $10,000 in each tier by 2018. The last time there was a raise to the three-tier salary levels was in 2007.
