Dear Senator XXXX:
 

I am a taxpayer and voter in your district.  I am a retired educator and member of MRTA.  Today you were delivered our 2018 MRTA Issues of Importance by members of MRTA.  I ask you to review them and consider our positions. There are two pieces of legislation I would like you to oppose.  SB 612 (Koenig R-15) and SB 565 (Emery R-31) are voucher type bills which drain tax revenue away from public education in a time of scarce state revenue.

Thank you for your willingness to serve our state.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can answer any questions.  I wish you the very best.

 Sincerely,

Dear Representative XXXX:

I am a taxpayer and voter in your district.  I am a retired educator and member of MRTA.  Today you were delivered our 2018 MRTA Issues of Importance by members of MRTA.  I ask you to review them and consider our positions.  There is an important issue I would like you to oppose and that is HB 2247 (Roeber R-34).  This bill expands charter schools statewide and will drain scarce state revenues from public education. The vast majority of our public schools in Missouri do an excellent job and charter schools are not needed.  
 
Thank you for your willingness to serve our state.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can answer any questions.  I wish you the very best.
 
Sincerely,

  1. I just wrote my state representative today about two other bills that concern me. One of them is MO HB2188 which establishes the “Show Me Opportunity Scholarship Program.” This bill is a tax credit voucher bill also. I read about it in a Legislative Update publication. In addition, MO HB2247 Changes provisions relating to charter schools is a serious concern for those of us in rural MO.
