Dictate our state’s future education policy unilaterally

Article posted on May 22, 2017

We’re back in session today and had a capitol building full of visitors.  I was able to attend part of a Judiciary Committee hearing on mandatory minimum sentences this morning, but had appointments set up in my office and promised to attend two annual rallies, one on our 2nd Amendment rights and one with the ABATE motorcycle folks.  The 100 Mile March people showed up throughout the morning and were disruptive, as expected.  Over 20 were arrested for their misbehavior.  We’re running a few bills through the Education Committee tomorrow morning; one is a bill of mine that requires the legislature to approve the new education plan which must be submitted to the Feds to comply with the Every Student Succeeds Act.  The Governor doesn’t like it and came out in opposition today.  I understand that he doesn’t want to give up exclusive control of anything, but the state constitution says otherwise, and the legislature can’t allow this administration to dictate our state’s future education policy unilaterally.
