I was thrilled to have one of Provo’s educators, Susan Anderson, join me on the House floor. Education is dear to my heart. We are continuing to work towards better Education in our state. Our resources are limited. There are still many significant needs–more than we have resources to match. As our economy improves, more money is channeled toward our Educational objectives.
I continue to work on our Public Lands issue with key legislation. When we only have 1/3 of our resources available to us, it makes funding critical needs in Education and others areas more difficult due to limited revenues. We want to preserve and protect our natural resources and bring them under local control.
Towards Safer Internet in Schools
Last week, I was featured in an article in the Deseret News about a bill that would increase internet safety and promote local and parental control. The intent of my legislation is to provide additional resources for parents and empower them at the local level to address this situation. You can click here to find the text to HB213.
This issue of internet safety and some of the consequences were addressed in a recent broadcast featured on KSL News last week.
Our Special Guest
Every 75 days, our District gets to make a recommendation to have someone pray in the House before our morning session begins. It was a privilege to have the LDS Church Young Woman’s General President, Bonnie Oscarson represent and pray for us. I appreciate her service and example to all.
Thank you to so many of you who joined us last Saturday for a Legislative update. The questions were great and I enjoyed sharing information about the Session with you. Please consider coming to our next update.
