HB 710, which strips voters from of their role as deciding who is doing the best job of representing them at the State Board of Education, has still not been voted on by the House, and should come up for a vote today.
I have talked to many, many legislators and all have said they will vote “NO” on this bill. Also, we circulated a “VOTE NO ON HB 710″ flyer to all House members on Saturday and Monday.
Keep the calls going and spread the word. We are definitely making progress. One legislator told me this morning-“yes, we are getting the calls!” He’s a “NO” on this bill, by the way.
