Committee Hearing on PE Bill


9:09 The Senate Education Committee is taking testimony on SB 891 - which will improve physical education in Texas.

9:16 American Heart Association volunteer Kenny Taylor is now testifying in favor of this bill. "Only half of adolescents engage in daily physical activity and only 25% report daily physical education.....we are raising perhaps the least active and most unhealthy generation of Americans."

9:23 SB 891 has been passed by the Senate Education Committee by a vote of 5-0!! It will now head to the full Senate a vote.
