As an earlier post noted, 1059 has been referred to Senate Ways & Means. If you want it to get a hearing there, the person to call is Sen. John Braun, R-Centralia, chair of the Senate Ways & Means committee, at (360) 786-7638.
His very nice legislative aide asked for my district and said she is keeping track of these calls. (Double super bonus points if you can track down a friend or relative from the 20th district (Centralia, most of Lewis and Cowlitz counties, some of Thurston and Clark counties) and get them to make a call too.)
You could say something like, "I'm a public school parent and I wanted to express my support for HB 1059, which was just referred to the Ways & Means committee today. I hope the committee will hold a hearing on the bill soon and that Sen. Braun will vote in favor when it does."
Some of the senators on the Ways & Means committee co-sponsored the companion bill, some did not, so I thought those two groups should get a different email.
First, here are the emails of those who did not.
Your email could say something like, "I'm a voter and a public-school parent and I wanted to express my support for HB 1059, the levy extension bill, which was referred to the Ways & Means committee today. I hope that the committee will act quickly to give schools certainty and avoid teacher layoffs. We want our educators focused on teaching, not budgeting! Please support this bill."
