Senator Taylor on Snyder Teacher Rally Request

Statement by Senator Stratton Taylor
Senate President Pro Tempore

"I don't think the Legislature has any business telling people when they can and cannot come to the State Capitol. They're taxpayers, they own the building and they can come whenever they like."

"As Democrats, we welcome citizens to come to the Capitol any day."

"If the teachers are interested in visiting the State Capitol on a Saturday, we will certainly do everything we can to accommodate them. However, that is their decision to make, not the Legislature's."
