From CEA: Action Alert: Teacher Tax

Tell Governor Malloy to veto the Republican budget that passed the legislature.
It imposes an unprecedented tax on teachers of approximately $1,500 per teacher—every year—that will NOT go into the teacher retirement fund to support teacher retirement. This is an unfair tax that goes into the state’s general fund, and must not become law.

Urge him to
1)    Veto the Republican budget
2)    Pass a fair budget, without a $1,500 tax on teachers and without a cost shift
3)    Invest in public education and the future of our children and our state
Tell the governor not to balance the state budget on the backs of students and teachers.
