Throughout this legislative session, and for the last 5 years, Senator Hobbs has championed classified employee insurance benefits. Most recently, and during the special sessions, he has asked budget and McCleary solution negotiators to take care of one problem: affordable, quality health insurance for all classified employees. With the introduction of SEBB (school employee benefit board) in the McCleary solution bill (HB 2242), his patience and determination to help classified employees was finally rewarded.
What you don’t realize is that he has withstood withering attacks that would have scared any normal politician away from the issue.
Congratulations Senator Hobbs and thank you for standing strong for classified school employees!
