At Wednesday’s Senate Ways and Mean Committee, they conducted a “work session” on SEBB. I am including the entire video (a little over one hour) because it was exciting to hear the questions/comments about the need to provide affordable, quality healthcare to part-time classified employees.
After getting a briefing from Senate staff, and David Iseminger from the HCA (Health Care Authority), Shawn Lewis, spokesperson for the SEBB Labor Coalition (and Government Relations Director for WEA), presented the Coalition’s positions on State funding for SEBB. After hearing from Shawn, they finished the hearing with two school district representatives.
Also, during Shawn’s presentation, we handed out this letter from the Coalition.
I was very pleased with the tone and direction of the discussion!
