The MSHA Executive Board has maintained vigilant contact with Senate and House conferees (A. Nunnelee, D. Blount, V. Carmichael, C. Brown, J. Stringer, R. Straughter) as preliminary budget meetings were conducted. Our lobbyist will continue to monitor conference sessions this week. We have previously provided information in MSHA News from MDE about the growth of National Board Certified personnel and the increases in funding needed (see slides 33 & 34 in previous post). This week is critical as budget decisions must be made by June 1st. We encourage your continued contact with members of the Senate Appropriations Committee and your individual legislators on full funding of the supplement.
