Chamber supports school funding

The Reno Sparks Chamber of Commerce sent this message to its members:

“Assembly Bill 46 would provide a sustainable funding source for the school district to continue to maintain and repair the critical systems that keep our community's 93 schools open, safe, and functional for our children. With a half-billion dollars in unfunded needs, the school district needs funding to pay for the maintenance and repair projects that many of us may not think about when we think about education (like heating and ventilation systems, plumbing, roofing, and pavement). Right now, the school district has no sustainable funding source to continue to pay for these projects. … With less than 30 days left in the 2013 session, we need to let our legislators and the governor know why we support this important piece of legislation.”
