HB 7029 Is Enrolled
The engrossed, enrolled version of the most talked-about education related legislation for 2016 is now available. This bill, HB 7029, can be viewed/downloaded here.
As I have discussed frequently on this blog, this bill is a game-changer for conservative school board members statewide, and eventually it will be for members nationwide as well.
And the vote and the events from Tuesday Night's Escambia County School Board meeting will reverberate far and wide in the struggle for individual, duly elected conservative school board members to choose whom it is (if anyone) that will receive their share of taxpayer funded dues memberships for advocacy/training/professional development.
Next up, after the Governor signs the bill, the implementation of the law will be huge. I can't wait for July 1st!
(Pages 14- 15 of this 160 page bill are the critical parts of this pending law as it pertains to taxpayer funded membership dues)
