This week, our Michigan legislators are asking us to continue to put pressure on key state senators to develop legislation that:

  1. Keeps pay checks coming for all school employees (including teachers).
  2. Provides solutions to enable distance learning for academic credit for every student while school is out.

If you called these senators last week, you can still call again this week.
Even better, forward this e-mail to 5 friends and get them to call or e-mail.

Sen. Majority Leader Mike Shirkey (517) 373-5932 https://www.senatormikeshirkey.com/contact/
Sen. Jon Bumstead at (517) 373-1635 SenJBumstead@senate.michigan.gov

NOTE: The above phone numbers are correct but are being forwarded to the cell phones of staffers who are working remotely. So if you get what sounds like a personal voicemail greeting, it is OK to leave a message. It is not a wrong number.
