Today in the Iowa House, a number of bills supported by IACS cleared hurdles and advanced to the next stage of the legislative process.
House File 2090 (Education Savings Accounts) passed out of subcommittee today and will move to the full Education Committee in the House. This bill has significant opposition from public school groups and we urge you to keep an eye open for a call-to-action very soon. Be sure to sign up for our email list to ensure you get the action alert as soon as it comes out.
Today in the Education Committee, the following IACS-supported bills passed out of Committee and will now be eligible for debate on the floor of the House:
HF 559 (This bill corrects the nonpublic start date waiver issue created in last year’s ed reform bill and addresses the counting of days in the case of early outs or late starts for emergencies or inclement weather)
HSB 562 (Transitional Coaching Authorization – makes it easier to hire coaches)
