Updates on SB48

February 20, 2019 Update

SB48 passed unanimously today in the Senate, so it moves on to the House! It will likely gain momentum after Crossover Day on March 7th, but now is the time to lay the foundation and reach out to Representatives in the House. 

If your Representative is on the House Education Committee, would you please reach out to them and let them know your story, and how they can help by supporting SB48 as it makes it way to the House Education Committee? We would love for them to co-sponsor SB48. 

Here’s the House Education Committee List of Representatives: 
Jasperse, Rick, Chairman
