College Tuition for Surviving Family Members of a Fallen Highway Worker

ACT NOW- Vote to come 2/26/16

CALL YOUR WA SENATOR 1-800-562-6000 to Pass 2SHB 2804 providing College Tuition for Surviving Family Members of a Fallen Highway Worker on WA Transportation Projects.
 
Washington’s highway worker families need your help. As constituents please ask your Senator for their Vote (“Yes”) to pass 2SHB 2804 on to Gov. Inslee for adoption into law.
 
Currently without passage of 2SHB 2804 only publicly employed fallen highway worker families are eligible for the higher ed tuition exemption on state-funded transportation projects. Tradesmen and women who construct and repair highway projects face the same peril and dangers as our public brothers and sisters; without passage of 2SHB 2804, an unfair discrimination exists based simply on our employer.  All workers, public and private pay into, and are covered by workers compensation, but the survivors’ benefits are not a wage replacement.  We too diligently work in harms way for the greater public good and deserve fair treatment when the ultimate sacrifice is a result of our exposure on a public transportation project.
 
Call 800-562-6000 to leave a considerate message as the Senator’s constituent Carpenter and working family.
Tell them you are a constituent of the Senator who urges the Senator’s  Vote “Yes” to pass 2SHB 2804 WITHOUT AMENDMENT on to the Governor for passage this year.  Request a reply from your Senator to your inquiry, “Can your working family count on the Senator’s support and Vote “Yes” to pass 2SHB 2804 this session?”
