HB 542: Parental Rights of Conscience Hearing with Senate Committee

On April 5th, Tuesday at 1:30 PM there will be a public hearing in front of the Senate Education Committee in the LOB Room 103.

It's very important that parents attend or contact these committee members and tell them to support parental rights. Click on the senators names to get their phone numbers and email addresses. The lobbyists will be working hard to oppose this bill, so we need lots of parents to remind these legislators that our rights of conscience are inalienable.
