Governor Vetoes Senate Bill 140

JUNEAU- Governor Dunleavy has announced that he has vetoed Senate Bill 140, the broadly supported bipartisan education bill which passed overwhelmingly on a vote of 56-3.

 

“The governor’s decision to veto this comprehensive and bipartisan education bill is extremely disappointing. Throughout this session, Alaskans have made clear that the legislature must address the funding crisis facing our students, educators, and schools across Alaska,” said House Minority Leader Rep. Calvin Schrage (I-Anchorage). “Alaska’s education system is in crisis and SB140 provides essential support to Alaska’s students whether they attend charter, correspondence, or neighborhood brick and mortar schools while directing funds into the classroom and funding the Alaska Reads Act. The members of the Alaska House Coalition stand ready to override this veto and ensure SB140 becomes law.”
