CT - SB162 - Education Committee To Place Withdrawal Bill On Their Agenda

We’ve received word today from the clerk of the CT Legislature's Education Committee that “it is likely that Senate Bill #162 will be placed on the agenda of the Education Committee for a vote at its meeting either on Monday, March 17, 2008 or Tuesday, March 18, 2008.”

Both meetings will be held at 1 p.m. at the Legislative Office Building in Room 2E, in Hartford.

We are hopeful that the bill actually will be placed on the agenda for either of those two meetings. The Education Committee’s deadline for voting a joint favorable recommendation for bills is March 19, 2008.

If the bill is not placed on the agenda before March 19, 2008, it “dies” in committee and there will be no vote on it on the floor of the House or Senate.

Therefore, we are asking anyone who can attend the Education Committee meetings, to please do so. You will not have an opportunity to speak - but your presence will speak for you.
