Ah, the thrills of victory. As you all know, the Prosperity Partnership celebrated the passage of two bills this legislative session that codified the recommendations of the Governor’s Higher Education Funding Task Force into law. And when bills pass, there’s a signing ceremony…which means
free pens for everyone involved an opportunity to acknowledge the impact that this legislation will have and the important role that a wide variety of stakeholders played in ensuring that success.
It’s our pleasure here at the Prosperity Blog to give you inside access to exactly what happened during that celebration!
By the way, did I mention that Boeing and Microsoft just pledged $50 million to seed funding of the new low- and middle-income scholarship fund that the bill creates? Now that is what I call an effective legislative session!
