Education & Workforce Advocacy
Guiding Principle: We must ensure we have a well-funded and efficient education system from early childhood to post-college. We can invest now or pay a heavy economic price down the road.
2016 Agenda Items:
- We support a crafted, targeted bond bill for higher education capital projects and workforce development.
- We support additional funding for the state's neediest students and schools, but not at the expense of Upstate districts that have a severely limited ability to raise their own funding.
- We support equitable state funding for higher education.
- With $1.3 billion in new revenue expected for 2016-2017, we support increasing the base student cost.
