Educators angry as bill cutting teacher benefits advances in Kentucky

Bill sponsor Bowen says changes will result in $3.2 billion in savings over 20 years.

Other proponents said there's not enough time left in the session to complete the bill, which faces 23 amendments, debate, and votes in the Senate and House. Rep. Landon Brown, R-Cheyenne, was the only Laramie County lawmaker on the committee. Earlier Wednesday, he vowed to review the bill "line by line" before signing it.

House Speaker Steve Harshman, R-Casper, has pushed HB 140 hard and presented the legislation in Monday's meeting. She said. "So don't try to balance the budget on the backs of teachers". But he said it never went so far as to violate the state constitution. "Why should I or anyone else have to live by that?" said Malachy Grange, who came out to back the measure.

The House is expected to take final action on the bill Thursday.

"We are going to sue you", a woman in the crowd told Bowen at one point.

"We know that when it comes to preventing future acts of school violence, today's vote is just the beginning of our journey". Did we push that title? He told fellow senators he would vote for the appropriation "if we are one vote short". Monday, Sen. Bruce Burns, R-Sheridan, a member of the conference committee, proposed using the House's funding model in the first year and the Senate model in the second year.

Whether to sign the bill is an important political consideration for Scott, who is term-limited and is widely expected to challenge Florida's Democratic US senator, Bill Nelson, in the November midterm election. Mike Woelfel, D-Cabell said.

"There's not a chance on this planet that that is going to be the case", Justice said. "That alone, for me, is a deal-breaker" in terms of supporting the bill, he said. I saw tears of joy, tears of relief. I think the vast majority of teachers are none of the above.

Stone said he still supports raising the marriage age. The amendment passed, with only Sen.

The House education committee met Monday night and discussed several Senate proposals.

Junior Ella Hauck said there was heightened concern among her peers - not only because of negative long-term effects cuts could have on students, but also in part because of what it could mean for school resource officers, she said. He said GOP lawmakers were united on the school security plan. "We can not put a dollar amount on someone's life or future". Additional funding for tourism and the development office is out but they will maintain their current funding levels. "I'm not asking you to respect me".

Hanger said negotiations would continue late into the evenings if needed, and said he remained optimistic. Other legislators-including me-oppose this attack on direct democracy.
