Urge NO vote on SB 1040 in House this week
The Legislature reconvenes Tuesday for what could be its final week before their summer break and indications are that SB 1040 – the unprecedented assault on school employee retirement – will be on the agenda.
Many State Representatives are still unsure how they will vote on this bill that attacks the retirement security of future, current and retired school employees across the state. Contact them today! Urge them to vote NO on SB 1040. It’s not a fix for a long-term problem—one that school employees didn’t create. It merely shifts the financial burden from school districts to current and retired school employees who are already paying more than their share. Let them know that taxes on pensions, salary cuts and increased costs for health insurance are robbing you of the ability to support yourself and your family.
