Update on Hearing and Bill- Delayed
- Possibly due to world events, the hearing did not take place for the
Education Reform Committee regarding the IDEA Reauthorization bill. It
had been slated to be introduced and assigned its number today.
We can breathe a temporary sigh of relief.
But the substance of the bill remains the same. The information remains
correct and that is the content. If you were concerned by the 7 issues
which I highlighted in my previous post, we must take advantage of this
gift of time.
Stuff those faxes, mailboxes, and email accounts of legislators. Flood
their phone lines. You can make a difference.
Correction: I listed Senator Ted Kennedy as head of IDEA reauthorization
but he is the ranking member of the Education/Workforce Committee.
Still cc him. The chairperson of IDEA reauthorization was listed on the
previous posts. Please cc him. He hails from Ohio.
Thank you for your time.
Sincerely, Debbie Brown
