Education Remains a PriorityMay 30, 2019
House of Representatives pass the following bills:
- H.B. 7111, AN ACT CONCERNING REVISIONS TO THE COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL HEALTH EDUCATION CURRICULUM AND THE AVAILABILITY OF INFORMATION ON THE DANGERS OF VAPING FOR USE BY SCHOOL DISTRICTS
The education curriculum is outdated considering the public health curriculum does not include the recent development of e-cigarette technology, its proliferation, and the health risks associated with vaping. The public curriculum does not include the role of consent and healthy sexual relationships. This bill would update the public curriculum to include these two issues specifically.
- H.B. 7349, AN ACT CONCERNING IDENTITY THEFT VICTIM ACCESS TO RECORDS
The bill aims to enable identity theft victims to access records in the case of identity theft that would otherwise be unavailable to the victim.
Passing legislation that protects our residents is my top-priority. Both these bills will now be considered by the Senate.
