Republican legislators give, then take away special education support
HELENA -- Republicans in the Montana Legislature decided to play games today with some of Montana’s most vulnerable citizens -- our students with special needs.
Today, though, Republicans on the House Appropriations committee killed the bill by voting against it, mostly along party lines, 12-10.
“Our Republican legislators just pulled the rug out from under Montana’s students with special needs in our public schools,” said Nancy Keenan, executive director of the Montana Democratic Party. “Republicans are playing a vicious game by limiting the progress and opportunities for special education students and they need to be held accountable.”
