Earlier today we alerted you to another amendment, this time by Sen. Jim Smith, to ban dues deduction by teacher associations.


HB 1126 was presented earlier today on 2nd reading and Sen. Smith did not introduce his amendment.


Thank you for all of your phone calls to Senators on this further attempt to weaken teachers and their professional associations.


We will continue to monitor other attempts to introduce this type of amendment on other bills.
