Legislative Update from Rep. Yvonne Selcer

Dear Neighbors,

Hope you all are having a Happy and Healthy New Year in this cold weather!

Thanks to all of you who have kept in touch, and have answered the door  during this time between legislative sessions.  Many thanks to those of you who have invited me to step inside for a moment to warm up!  I have enjoyed our conversations, and also attending many community events, including visits to our local schools and businesses (as a member of the bi-partisan House Small Business Caucus).

Interim Update:

The first $246 million completely paid back the money that had been shifted away from our schools.  I was proud to be the author of House File 1 to pay back the school shift.  That bill was enacted into law after it was incorporated into the 2013 Education Omnibus Bill.  You can see text of the bill by following the link here.
