On April 17, The House Education Committee narrowly voted in favor of HB229, known to the world as the "Don't Say Gay" bill. HB229 now goes to the House Calendar and Rules Committee.
HB229 is a reckless bill motivated by anti-gay bigotry that may actually overturn current state law on sex education that prohibits the teaching of sex education to children in grades K-8. Some House Lawmakers appear to be engaging in cognitive dissonance. Many voice support for limiting sex education to grades 9-12 while voting to teach "natural human reproduction science" to kindergarteners.
Act now to stop the advancement of this bill.
Tell the House Calendar and Rules Committee to refer HB229 back to the House Education Committee for further review.
