JFC Holds Public Hearing Last Night, Will Exec AB 835/SB 690 Today

By John Forester | February 8, 2018

At a public hearing last night before the Joint Finance Committee (JFC), the SAA strongly supported SB 690 relating to increasing sparsity aid and the low revenue ceiling for school districts.  The SAA also raised concerns about the “failed operating referendum” provision in the bill and expressed support for an ongoing effort to amend that language.

Hats off to Superintendents Bruggink (Oostburg), McNulty (Mukwonago), and Sievers (Slinger), as well as Oak Creek-Franklin Business Manager Andrew Chromy, for their outstanding testimony in support of the bill last night.

The JFC will reconvene today to exec several bills including AB 835/SB 690.  We expect lop-sided and bipartisan passage of the bill by JFC.  This action will generate significant momentum for ultimate passage of the bill in both houses.

SAA members are encouraged to contact their legislators again in support of the bill.  Let’s get this important bill across the finish line.  Stay tuned.
