Legislature adjourned for week – no voting on our issues

From the MEA lobbyists:

Just an update that both the House and Senate have adjourned for the weekend. They’ll be back on Tuesday for three more days of the lame duck session. 

Please keep up the pressure on both the tax refund “technical fix” (the price tag for which is now up to $425-430 million – check out this Detroit News story – still no final, formal bill number that they’ve decided to use in moving the legislation) and the release time bills (SB 279-280), which now would ban community colleges from payroll deduction of dues. The calls and emails from lawmakers are working and we have to continue that pressure into next week.

More updates when we have them…
