|Subject:||Non-public School Exemption (Prior HB 2974, 19/20)|
|In the near future, I plan to re-introduce legislation (prior HB 2974) that would exempt private schools and home schools, home school groups, one room schools, church schools (who are not taking direct tax payer dollars to operate their schools) from the requirements, guidelines, mandates or orders of any declaration of disaster emergency made by the Governor or any state agency or entity.
Our non-public schools, children, parents, and teachers have been adversely affected by the Governor’s overbearing “one size fits all” mandates. This legislation will put regulations & decisions during an emergency disaster declaration back into the hands of non-public schools, who know what is best for their students.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.
