This week, PSBA President Eric Wolfgang presented testimony to the House Democratic Policy Committee regarding cost savings and improved efficiency for school districts. Wolfgang emphasized PSBA’s call for various specific solutions, including legislation that would create broad, permanent relief from mandates that consume much of district budgets and stifle innovation. The association is working with Senator Langerholc to introduce Senate Bill 1286. Another helpful solution is to address the antiquated law which only allows advertising/public notice requirements to be fulfilled by publishing in printed newspapers, by providing districts with a flexible menu of print and online options to use in complying with advertising/public notice requirements. PSBA has worked with Representative Ortitay to introduce House Bill 2743 and Senator DiSanto to introduce SB 1222. Click here to read PSBA’s testimony.
