VEA Honors Thirty-Three Members of the Virginia House of Delegates for Support of Public Schools
The General Assembly Session adjourned sine die on Feb. 25, following the approval of a $107 billion biennial budget. The budget includes pay raises for local and state employees, teachers, state troopers, sheriff departments, additional education funding, funds for career development program for constitutional officers and investment in mental health.
The VEA initiated bill, HB2332, carried and championed by Delegate Roslyn Tyler passed the Senate today 40-0, and was engrossed and sent to the Governor's desk to sign! The bill passed the House 100-0 earlier in session. In case you think this was a no-brainer bill, the VEA has tried many sessions, and in many ways, to get this type of bill through the General Assembly, and we have not been successful.
