- 3 Bills Passed Third Read
Passed Third Read
HB 2176 college credit by examination; payments (Weninger) passed 17-12. ASBA is monitoring.
HB 2303 schools; computer science; mathematics; science (Udall) passed 29-0. ASBA is neutral.
SB 1346 schools; menu of assessments (Allen) passed as amended 55-5. ASBA supports.
Today, the House of Representatives passed SB 1346, which was amended to repeal the “no promo homo” sections of statute. As a part of its commitment to educational equity, ASBA has been working with a number of advocates and stakeholders on this issue for some time, and strongly supports this effort. A repeal of the “no promo homo” section of the statute returns curriculum decisions around HIV/AIDS to local governing boards. This is compatible with ASBA’s strong position in favor of removing state instructional mandates.
