IT'S TIME TO ROLL BACK THE TEACHER TAX

We have a little over a week to urge legislators to do what's right and roll back the teacher tax. Legislators are currently considering action on a budget bill, so now is the time to contact them.

Contact your legislators and tell them to roll back the teacher tax and pass HB 5430.

Tell legislative leaders to call the bill for a full vote.

Legislators need to hear from you to make this happen before the session ends on May 9.
