Statement from Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey; March 17, 2011:
Last November, Tennesseans issued a mandate to the Republican majority to institute bold and meaningful education reform. Sen. Jack Johnson’s bill to outlaw locking taxpayers into funding union contracts is a prime example of the kind of reform Tennesseans have requested. The Senate remains committed to answering the call of the voters and hope to ultimately see this reform reflected in the law.
