House passes DeMordaunt bill, 44-20

HB 325, Rep. Reed DeMordaunt’s bill to tie strings to the newly restored 1.67 percent of teacher salary funds included in next year’s school budget, has passed the House on a 44-20 vote, with bipartisan opposition. “I believe we can all stand proud that we across the board have done a great deal for education this year,” DeMordaunt told the House, “and this is something else, one thing we are doing to make sure that we’ve reduced those class sizes when they’ve been increased and to make sure that we get teachers back that have been let go.” The bill now moves to the Senate side.
