Tell Sen. Hobbs: Hands off our healthcare!

State Sen. Steve Hobbs is one of only a few state legislators who is still pushing SB 6442, the costly state takeover of K-12 employees' health insurance. SB 6442 will cost taxpayers $45 million in coming years, and it will increase costs and reduce benefits for school employees. WEA members have opposed SB 6442 since it was introduced months ago.

Unfortunately, SB 6442 remains alive. We need to make sure it is NOT part of a final budget plan in Olympia. Please take a minute to write Sen. Hobbs and urge him to oppose SB 6442 or any other changes to K-12 health care.

Sen. Hobbs recently turned down an invitation to meet with local educators to discuss this bill. That's why it’s so important that you email Sen. Hobbs and tell him why you oppose SB 6442.
