THE AGENDA: Legislative update by Steve Baas - Senior VP of Government Affairs
This week, the legislature’s Joint Committee on Finance successfully voted to remove provisions in the Governor’s proposed budget that would have capped access to high-performing Choice and Charter schools. We appreciate the Finance Committee’s leadership on this issue. Their action was more than a victory for the MMAC Education agenda.
More importantly, it was a win for students like these young men and women at Milwaukee Collegiate Academy who celebrated College Signing Day by announcing their success earning scholarships and acceptance into college. The work of the Finance Committee helps ensure that educational opportunity like this will remains available for future Milwaukee students.
