Healthy Schools Amendment Act working groups

The Committee on Government Operations and the Environment is convening two working group meetings to discuss each part of the bill in depth, understand concerns, and improve the bill.   The public is encouraged to attend.   The meetings are:
  • Thursday, April 14 at 2:00 pm in Room 401 of the JAWB.   At this Thursday’s meeting, attendees will go section-by-section through HSA 2011 and try to address all concerns.
  • Thursday, April 28 at 2:00 pm in Room 401 of the JAWB.   Attendees will review any sections that were not reviewed at the first meeting, discuss the revised draft of the bill, and then invite discussion on any other ideas for improving health, wellness, and nutrition in schools.

Email Drew Newman if you plan on attending either of these meetings.

A public hearing for this bill has been scheduled for May 5 at 2:00 pm. If you are interested in testifying, contact Aukima Benjamin at 724-8062 or via email.   This bill is on-schedule to be voted on in May and June so that it can take effect in August 2011, before the new school year begins.
