The second half of session continued this week with committee hearings and further movement on bills through the second chamber.
Our advocacy efforts to oppose HB1134 and support Hoosier educators and students continue. HB 1134, "Education Matters," has been referred to the Senate Committee on Education and Career Development. We are expecting it to receive a committee hearing on Wednesday, February 16th, so because of that, we are joining many other education advocates from across the State to be present at the Statehouse to show our opposition to HB1134.
We hope you can join us, which is why we are hosting a "MCCOY Day at the Statehouse," where you can join me, other MCCOY staff, MCCOY board members, and MCCOY supporters at the Indiana Statehouse to advocate against HB1134. This will allow you a chance to be in the room where these important decisions are being made, and share your thoughts, first hand, with legislators. I hope you will consider joining us and especially consider providing testimony during the committee hearing yourself!
