Current Bill Summary


SB 135 – Beginning with the 2010-2011 school year, this act requires school districts to pay registered professional school nurses on the same pay scale as teachers with equivalent work history and working hours. The salary requirements must not result in a decrease or loss of existing school funding or decrease the number of nursing positions in a district.

This act is identical to HB 456 (2009) and is substantially similar to HB 1374 (2008). This act is identical to a provision contained in HCS/HB 631 (2009).
