Wooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooo!

A rumor circulating through Ashford at this evening's Board of Finance meeting was that two CT State Senators will be introducing a Bill on Monday that legislates that the State of CT will reimburse school districts 100% of the cost of special education expenses!

Every man, woman, and child needs to show up in Hartford on Monday to support these brave souls. There is no single piece of legislation that would more relieve taxpayers than this.

I'll update this post as soon as more information becomes available.

UPDATE: Here's the skinny:

HB No. 5842, entitled "AN ACT LOWERING PROPERTY TAXES THROUGH STATE
ASSUMPTION OF MUNICIPAL LIABILITIES," was recently introduced by the
Finance, Revenue, and Bonding Committee. In essence, it requires the state
to cover 100 percent of the special education costs in the state as well as
cover most health insurance costs for municipal employees. A hearing on the
bill is scheduled for Monday. To access information on the bill, go to
http://www.cga.ct.gov/ and enter 5842 in the "Quick Search" option at the
top of the page.
