What a great sight to see…the just released Senate budget meets all of PSE’s priorities. Whether it is fully funding our WWU (Western Washington University) and CWU (Central Washington University) contracts, the PEBB (Public Employees Benefits Board) coalition insurance agreement, the SEBB (School Employees Benefits Board) coalition insurance agreement, and, fully funding four days of paraeducator training, this budget was as good as it gets.
Two other features of the budget important to PSE were:
…increasing special education funding by $156 million;
…funding a 2% and 2.1% increase over the next two years.
If you are a glutton for even more details about the budgets, go here.
