In an effort to attract and retain additional educators, a proposed bill paves the way for teachers to have their income tax exempt after five years on the job.

Author of the bill, Senator Henry Stern of Los Angeles, says “Teachers are the original job creators. The teaching profession is critical to California’s economic success and impacts every vocation and profession in the state. SB 807 addresses the immediate teacher shortage and sends a loud and clear message across the state and nation:  California values teachers.”
