Last week we shared some good news with you about HB1605, Delegate Dave LaRock’s Parental Choice Education Savings Accounts Legislation. It was passed by both the House and Senate in Richmond and is now on the Governor’s desk awaiting his signature or veto.
This PCESA Bill would particularly benefit low income and developmentally disadvantaged and disabled children ensuring Education Justice for our students. We simply can’t see how it would benefit the Commonwealth, our children or their future to veto it. Please urge our Governor to do right by our children and SIGN HB1605, The PCESA Bill.
As you know a similar bill was defeated by our Lt. Governor when he voted against it as a tie -breaker. Our Administration has another chance, with HB1605, to correct this wrong against our children and their futures. Please don’t hesitate to make your voice heard and respectfully ask Governor McAuliffe to sign the Legislation into Law. Please tell him you support Education Justice here in the Commonwealth.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this pressing matter! We know that when we put out an alert or call to action, we can count on you to come through. Together, we are the voice of Democracy in our Commonwealth!
