Legislative Update for April 17, 2016
Welcome to the IAHPERD Legislative Update Center
Here we go again!
HB 825 requires another round of witness slips "OPPONENT". The bill is scheduled to be heard in the House Education Committee meeting on April 18, at 5 pm.
As you know, once a House legislative committee goes to recess all of the witness slips that were previously filed are erased. Witness slips do not carryover to when the committee reconvenes.
Contact your State legislators either by phone or email:

HB 825(click to view) IAHPERD is an OPPONENT of this bill
This bill targets the students of Round Lake Community Unit School District 116. The purpose of the bill is to provide only 2 days of PE for students in grades K through 5 in the Round Lake schools.
We are a tenacious group educators. I know you can hang in there with this repetitive process until this legislative session is done or the bill has gone away. The good news is HB 6164 is no longer an issues for us!
Remember We Are Essential!
