As promised, Here’s Roger Reinert’s reply to my question.
As you know, I’ve been in this new role for just three weeks now. During that time I’ve been focused on learning the role and the $4.8B deficit which I expect will grow to $7B by the end of this month. My attention has also been focused on the committees to which I’ve been appointed. As I’m sure you know, K-12 Finance is not one of them. You may wish to contact your Representative, Tom Huntley, on your concern since he has far more experience in the Legislature than I do.
and here’s my reply to Roger.
How reasonable Roger. Yes, by all means, please attend to your larger responsibilities.
