UPDATE, 7 p.m.: Equality Texas reports that the bill was voted favorably out of committee, 6-0.
From Equality Texas:
URGENT ACTION ALERT
We are running out of time!
HB 1942 by Rep. Diane Patrick is pending in the Senate Education Committee. Unless the bill gets favorably reported out of committee by the end of this week, we will run out of time to get the bill passed by the full Senate, concurred in the House, and to the Governor for signature.
HB 1942 is the single best opportunity to pass meaningful anti-bullying legislation this session. Don’t let the clock run out!
The Senate Education Commission is scheduled to meet THIS EVENING (Thursday) at Senator Shapiro’s desk to address pending business.
WE URGENTLY NEED YOU TO CALL THE MEMBERS OF SENATE EDUCATION AND ASK THEM TO MOVE HB 1942 FORWARD BY PASSING IT OUT OF COMMITTEE TODAY!
