Florida Legislature to honor Jade Moore
State lawmakers are poised to consider a resolution honoring Jade Moore, the longtime Pinellas teachers union chief who died in December. Crafted by Sen. Dennis Jones, R-Treasure Island, SR 2770 commends Moore “for his dedication to the preservation of public education in Florida."
Jones said he expects the Senate will take up the resolution within a couple weeks, though no date has been set. He said Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg, will handle the resolution in the House.
