After months of being jerked around, Rep. Thompson was promised a Proponent Only hearing from House leadership for HB237.
BUT CHAIRMAN STEBELTON HAS RELEASED THE CMTE NOTICE AND IS ALLOWING FOR ALL TESTIMONY! THIS WILL GREATLY REDUCE OUR EXPERT WITNESSES’ TESTIMONY TIME, POSSIBLY SQUEEZING IT OUT ENTIRELY!
Evidently he is so fearful of the truth being told that he will do anything to silence us and our witnesses. In contrast, he has scheduled FOUR hearings for Rep. Brenner’s Common Core distraction bills, HB181 and HB193, in just the last few weeks. In fact, both bills are receiving their fourth hearing PRECEDING our HB237 on Wednesday. This is outrageous. A new low for House leadership and Chairman Stebelton.
