Senate approves Budget

On a narrow 25-23 vote, the Senate approved its Supplemental Operating Budget yesterday.  Though there were a couple of amendments approved, none of them changed issues of interest to PSE.  They fully funded the increased salary allocation starting September 1, 2018, provided an additional $20 million to implement SEBB (School Employee Benefit Board), and funded $250,000 for development of paraeducator training modules.

Once the House has completed its budget, the House and Senate budget negotiators will iron out the differences in their budgets.
