Focus on the State Penny Sales Tax and Other Key Issues
This is the year of SAVE—we’re focusing on the state penny sales tax during the training portion of the morning. You’ll learn how to tell your legislators why it’s important to extend it and how your district is using it, and you’ll get some leave-behinds when you head up to the Capitol. We’re asking you to give your legislator a squishy piggy stress ball to remind them that SAVE is #WorthEveryPenny! Plus, we’ll have the #WorthEveryPenny photo frame for you to pose with your legislators so you can share on social media. We'll also go in-depth on other issues you can move forward, like funding equity, supplemental state aid and vouchers.
