Please put in calls to your state senator about two Raise Your Hand Actions initiatives, HB3606, the student data privacy bill, and the HB254, the class size goals and transparency bill. Both bills are scheduled for a hearing tomorrow---Tuesday, May 14th.
These bills made it out of the House in April, but now we need your help (and calls) to get them passed in the Senate!
When you call, ask your senator to sign on as a sponsor to both and commit to voting yes on the Senate floor later this month. You can also fill out witness slips as a PROPONENT for both bills before their hearings on Tuesday afternoon.
