Ruestman: Supporters of School Construction Act Urged to Call Lawmakers

An important piece of legislation affecting your school district will be voted on in the House this week.

House Bill 1960, the “School Construction Act”, would allow your school district to save up to 25% on school construction, remodeling or maintenance costs. It calls for exempting school districts from the prevailing wage requirement on public projects.

Nearly all Democrats and the following Republicans oppose or may oppose this bill:

Jason Brown 573-751-5693
Mark Bruns 573-751-0665
Doug Funderburk 573-751-2176
Mike McGhee 573-751-1462
Chris Molendorp 573-751-2175
Bob Nance 573-751-1468
Jerry Nolte 573-751-1470
Ryan Silvey 573-751-5282
Jason Smith 573-751-1688
Mike Sutherland 573-751-2689
Anne Zerr 573-751-3717

Please take the time to call one or more of these legislators and let them know you support House Bill 1960 because it is pro-education, pro-jobs and pro-taxpayer!

In this time of budget constraints, the schools need all the help they can use. Please ask other superintendents to contact their Representatives, including those residing in the above Representative’s districts.

Thank you in advance for your support and help in getting this passed.
