Madden: Educators Support Budget

During debate Wednesday evening on H.B. 611, the state budget bill, state Rep. Maureen Madden, D-Monroe, acknowledged that while education advocates preferred the original House Democratic budget bill, they are still supportive of the amended version because of its notable increases in funding education. After voting in support of this 2023-24 budget, Madden said it's now time to turn attention toward statute of limitations reform for victims and survivors of childhood sexual assault.
