SEBB easily passes Senate

After receiving a strong bi-partisan vote of 41-7 in the Senate yesterday, SB 6241 heads to the House for its consideration.  Senator Hobbs was able to fend off misleading efforts by SEBB opponents choosing instead to focus on the benefits of SEBB and the need to address necessary changes to the SEBB bill passed last year.

Improved data sharing, allowance of longer insurance benefit plans in the 2018-19 school year, clearly describing that family to single employee ratio should be 3:1, allowance of employers to provide optional benefits not covered by SEBB, allowance of employers to fund insurance benefits for employees who work less than 630 hours, and clearly describing that SEBB funding should be at least the same as state employees in PEBB, were some of the more important changes in 6241.
