Atkinson marks legislature’s 81st day, still no K-12 budget
By State Senator Jason Atkinson,
Oregon classrooms deserve stability and security
Salem — Senator Jason A. Atkinson (R-Central Point) believes when it comes to funding Oregon classrooms, politicians should start being good to their word. Atkinson told his colleagues that Thursday marks the 81st day of the legislative session, and yet classrooms are no closer to funding than on opening day. Atkinson has introduced Senate Joint Resolution 19 that would make funding education early in session a constitutional requirement.
