GLMA Legislative Alert: Expenditure Control Waiver Bill Hearing Tomorrow!

The House Education Academic Support Subcommittee will meet tomorrow, Tuesday, February 15 at 2:00 p.m. to hear HB 172, legislation that would extend the expenditure control waivers through 2015.

To review HB 172, CLICK HERE.

Contact members of the Subcommittee today.

  • Explain how expenditure controls for media center costs support student education and why it would be detrimental to the students in your school if the waiver is extended through 2015.
  • Currently, systems can receive expenditure control waivers through the 2012-13 school year.  HB 172 extends this waiver for two additional years.  Ask legislators why this extension is necessary now, in 2011.
  • Explain how media center materials are used to support the science and math curriculums.
  • Provide data on the age of your media center materials, and note how old your collections will be in 2015.

If you are able to attend the committee hearing tomorrow and would like to testify on the bill, please let us know as soon as possible so we can coordinate your trip to the Capitol.
