We are thrilled that HB 4031 "The Coordinated Student Success Act" has unanimously passed out of the House Education Committee, but we still have work to do! Right now, our bill is sitting in Ways and Means where legislators decide which bills get funded. Legislators are more likely to act on our bill if they get enough requests to do so. We want their mailboxes to be full and their phones to ring off the hook because of advocates for youth like you. It will only take one minute to make a call or a couple of minutes to fill in our letter template.
