On Monday, the House released a budget that fully funds our collective bargaining agreements and makes investments in K-12 education and mental health. This stands in stark contrast to the Senate budget, which rejects our contracts and cuts vital public services.
The House budget is funded by a revenue package that also helps fix our broken tax code. The House proposes closing some corporate tax loopholes, supporting collection of sales tax on out-of-state online retailers, and creating an excise tax on capital gains (with broad exemptions for single-family homes and retirement accounts).
The choice is clear between a budget that rejects our contracts (including our COLAs, our increased vacation accrual, and the specific pay increases we negotiated) and a budget that fully funds our contracts and helps build a fairer tax code.
