Legislature adjourns: SB 1172 and HB 2616 do not become law

We posted notice on this website of two items on the State legislative agenda that would have a negative impact on schools. Senate Bill 1172 said an employee of a school district could not distribute written or electronic materials to influence the outcome of an election or that advocated for or against pending legislation. House Bill 2616 said school districts could only keep part of the tax credit money they collected, the remainder being redistributed by the State.

We encouraged you to contact political officials about these bills, and you may have helped prevent them from becoming law. Thank you.
