HB 400 Delayed another Day


05/10/2011

HB 400 which is a massive public education bill has been delayed another day. Attempts have been made during debate on this bill to remove PE and Health requirements in Texas schools. It wasn’t debated yesterday, but could come up as early as this afternoon.

Please continue your calls and emails to your State Representative and tell them to vote against any amendments that would weaken PE, Health, and Nutrition standards in our school.

Click here to send and email and go here to look up your State Representative: http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/

See the below blog postings for more information on this issue.

Thanks!

5/11/2011 Update

Same story, different day.  HB 400 has been postponed once again.  It has now been scheduled for Thursday, May 12.  Thursday is also the deadline for this bill to pass the House floor, so we'll know something definitive by the end of Thursday.  Please continue to keep the calls and email coming in!
