I wanted to give everyone an update on Rep. Cook’s home school bill, because I know many of you follow the legislature pretty closely.
If you’ve looked at the legislative agenda today, you may have noticed that Rep. Cook’s bill, HB 2144, is still on the calendar for amendment. Don’t worry; it isn’t going anywhere. Rep. Cook has assured me he plans to refer the bill to an interim study—as we said yesterday.
If the bill is brought up in committee, that time will simply be used to make the motion to move it to an interim study.
I will let you know if things change, but I don’t anticipate that they will. For now, HB 2144 is going into an interim study.
Again, thank you for taking the time to call, email, and visit with your lawmakers.
