The House and Senate still haven’t met on the budget, but talks are starting to heat up. Groups on the right and left made it clear they see the House’s budget proposal as the reasonable one, with the Senate’s radical proposal far out of line with the state’s values. SEANC spoke out for pay raises and cost-of-living adjustments in the House budget. Also, retiree health benefits have become a major topic in the debate, and the Transportation Secretary resigned this week after telling SEANC members in DOT to not lobby for their jobs.
YOUR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
One of the outstanding benefits of SEANC membership is its scholarship program for active and associate members, their spouses and dependent children.
Membership in teachers' organizations or the State Employees' Credit Union (SECU) does not constitute eligibility for a SEANC Foundation scholarship. However, state and local government employees and retirees and state university system scholarship athletes are eligible to join SEANC if they so desire.
Find out more about the criteria from the SEANC scholarship brochure.
