2016 Legislative Session is Here

IMG_0595

Teachers, administrators, and GSV meet with Senator Rollie Heath at Hygiene Elementary.

Grassroots St. Vrain recently met with State Legislators that represent families living in the St. Vrain Valley School District. Our goal is to understand what public education related issues or opportunities are anticipated in the new legislative session and what bills each legislator may be sponsoring. We encourage our legislators to remember Grassroots St. Vrain is a resource for them throughout the session. These meetings were held in SVVSD schools so each legislator will have education and students on their mind as they head into session.

This year TABOR limits will be addressed along with a separate effort to remove hospital provider fees from the revenue causing us to reach those limits. The session started on January 13th and already numerous education related bills have been introduced. All education bills can be tracked with Chalkbeat’s Bill Tracker.

We will continue to meet with our State Legislators at the Capitol and attend upcoming town hall meetings and we would love to see you there. If you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact your legislators. Who is your Senator and House Representative?
