Week 3 of Interim Committee Meetings is now complete. Several education-related bills were heard this week and committees continued hearing presentations and budget updates. Covid-19 protocols remain in place for both House and Senate, but we encourage members to access resources on our Legislative Session page and to continue communicating with their local delegations on education issues.
