Caldier introduces insurance solution

Representative Michelle Caldier introduced today, two days before cutoff, her own solution to ensure school districts are offering affordable and quality health insurance for all employees in K 12 public schools.  HB 2110 would address the dependent/family ratio by requiring that,  “Local bargaining over basic benefits shall not alter the right of each employee of a district to pay substantially the same percentage share of the cost of health benefits as all other employees in the district, regardless of whether an employee chooses to cover dependents.”

I don’t expect her bill to get a hearing much less a vote in the House Education committee but it is nice to see her attempting to fix the problem.
