February 23 Legislative Alert
On Tuesday, February 15th, GLMA expressed concerns and opposition to HB 172, legislation that would extend the media center expenditure control waivers through 2015, during a meeting of the House Academic Support Subcommittee. HB 172 passed the education committee and will be voted on by the House today. If the House passes the bill, it will then move to the Senate.
We predict the House will pass HB 172 and that it will be assigned to the Senate Education and Youth Committee. It’s not too early to begin contacting Senators on the committee. Explain why media center expenditure controls are important and how media materials support the K-12 curriculum.
