URGENT: Action Needed

The House and Senate both unanimously passed the final version of HB 5. HB 5 will become law unless the governor vetoes the bill (June 16 is the deadline for the veto period).

It is imperative that we not take anything for granted.

Please contact the Governor's office today at (512) 463-2000 to respectfully request that he sign the bill into law now. School districts need time to adjust their calendars and make plans that reflect the new law.

Your voice has made a difference this session. Thank you for your advocacy.
