It’s time to roll back the 1 percent teacher tax increase.
The legislature is currently considering action on a budget bill, and we have two weeks left in the legislative session to fight for a roll back of the teacher tax from 7 to 6 percent.
Now is the time to call your legislators and ask them to pass HB 5430, An Act Concerning Teachers’ Retirement Commission Contributions.
Because of the many emails and phone calls legislators received from teachers, HB 5430 was passed out of committee. We must keep the pressure up.
Rolling back this unfair increase will require votes in the House and the Senate before midnight May 9. Your legislators and legislative leaders need to hear from you in order to make this happen.
