To the Editor: In this editorial you wrote, “So why are the House Finance Committee and its chairman, Rep. Neal Kurk, mucking up the bill?”
Too bad the person who wrote this editorial didn’t read the amendment. The two prime authors of the amendment were Education Committee Chairman Rick Ladd and Education Vice Chaiman of the Committee Terry Wolf. Perhaps your editorial should have mentioned that the two top folks of the Education Committee were the authors and apparently didn’t like the bill they wrote.
REP. LYNNE OBER
Editor’s Note: Regardless of the names on the amendment, Rep. Neal Kurk was the driving force behind the changes to SB 193, which the Education Committee and the full House had already approved before the Finance Committee’s meddling. We stand by our editorial.
