They gave up for now.

Cleared the board and delayed the vote until later. Now we are voting on SB418, MESSA reform. All you really need to know about this bill is it allows school districts to request bids on health insurance for their employees from competitors. It mandates MESSA, the third party carrier for insurance for most school districts to open their claims data so competitors can quote.

The MEA is dead set against this bill because it would mean a huge potential loss of revenue. The Dems almost all voted NO and then walked off the House floor. They are now hiding in their caucus room.
