Teacher pay raises, healthcare for part-time state workers on ‘Legislative Review’

By | April 23, 2013 | Comments

On Monday’s “Legislative Review” show: Teachers and school employees ask the Legislature to protect the cost of living pay raises that voters promised them more than a decade ago with Initiative 732. The House wants to continue suspending the initiative, while the Senate has proposed repealing it altogether.

Plus, we have highlights from a debate on the Senate floor over a bill that would make changes to healthcare coverage for part-time state workers. As part of the Senate’s budget proposal, part-time workers at state agencies, schools and colleges would no longer receive state health care — instead, they’d be moved into the new Health Benefit Exchange created by the Affordable Care Act.
