I ask that rather than sending me a "cut and paste" email with the corporate responses (asking me to vote no on SB310), please read both the overview sheet and the Bill and then send me an email with your thoughts (hope I don't regret that!) I'll state up front - we need and I support Tenure reform to some degree.
Also, from what I've read, SB 310 does not deal with the Education Budget, classroom sizes or closing corporate loop holes. For some reason I'm getting emails that imply SB 310 does. As I understand the options now, I don't support changing the divisor to increase classroom sizes. I'm working with others to determine where and how to ensure corporations doing business in Alabama are paying their fair share of taxes. I'm awaiting a response from the Commissioner of Revenue on the letter I sent her earlier this week.
I'll update the blog with more information on the day's events tomorrow. Goodnight!
