Public Education Remains Target During Final Week
The 2023 General Session of the Utah Legislature ends Friday, March 3. In the first days of the session, Utah lawmakers approved a $42 million bill creating the largest school voucher program in state history. HB215 was coupled with a $6,000 salary and benefits raise for teachers. UEA continues to look at every option available to overturn the legislation.
UEA is also continuing talks with lawmakers on changing Utah’s constitutional amendment for education funding in SJR10.
All members are invited to join a legislative debrief with UEA’s Legislative Team. It will be held virtually on March 8 at 4:30 p.m. The debrief will be in addition to, not in place of, any local meeting.
