This Video Update features FSBA Executive Director Andrea Messina recapping the events during our 29th Annual Day in the Legislature Conference. She highlights the long list of legislators who brought greetings and offered comments during our Legislative Leadership breakfast as well as those whom school board members visited in their offices during the conference. (Please scroll down below the video for additional information.)
Ms. Messina also provides an overview of our Legislative Briefing Session which included information about the major education bills that are currently under consideration and a discussion of the similarities and differences in each chamber’s education budget. Several of the bills and budget issues discussed during our Day in the Legislature Conference will continue to be in the spotlight this week. We encourage you to review our Legislative Briefing Bill Packet as well as our Comparison of the House & Senate Education Budget Proposals. Additional materials are available in our Legislative Session Resource Center.
