Take action to support public higher education: Email your legislators

Senate Bill 5905, part of the Senate budget proposal, would drastically change health insurance for part-time instructors in community and technical colleges and other higher education institutions across the state. 

Under SB 5905, anyone teaching less than 30 hours (basically all part-timers currently eligible for benefits) would be put into a questionable new health insurance program. Since the fiscal note on the bill estimates a large state cost saving, this change will most assuredly NOT be advantageous to current beneficiaries.
