Another week has come and gone at the Kansas Legislature. On Thursday the Working Kansas Alliance was focused on a very important amendment that was offered to SB 55. Senator Pettey offered the amendment, which would allow Wyandotte County to restore prevailing wage requirement on public construction projects.
Another busy week at the Kansas Legislature as legislators worked before the end of turn around day on Thursday.
On Monday, February 20th House Education Committee Chairman, Clay Aurand, cancelled the Education Committee meeting. He did this because he did not want HB 2179 to come up for a vote in committee. HB 2179 would reinstate due process for teachers in Kansas. HB 2179 was likely to move out of the House Education Committee favorably. However, this was not the end of the fight to reinstate due process for teachers.
