HB1001 directly from Brad Barrett’s newsletter, "expanding state’s top-ranked school choice program (HB1001)." This will take money from public schools. It is coming from both branches of legislature. See MoreSee Less

Well here it goes, the continued attack on public education.This is forwarded from the Indiana Coalition for Public Education. "Wed., Jan. 18 SB 305 goes before the Senate Education Committee that Sen. Raatz chairs. SB 305 is being rushed forward–it was only posted late Monday. The GOP’s plan is to deliver a significant increase in funding for "school choice" and this bill is how they plan to do it. What I am asking is that you forward this information and message to educators you know in Wayne Co. Alert them to the legislation and ask them to take action by calling Sen. Raatz and asking him not to support this bill. The phone # 317.233.0930 or 800.382.9467. Callers will be asked for their name and address along with the message. An email to follow up on the phone message to Sen. Raatz about SB 305 helps illustrate the strength of his constituents’ opposition to this bill. Sen. Raatz’s email is [email protected]" See MoreSee Less

Timeline photosURGENT! Emails needed. Legislative session has begun and the puppy mill industry is already trying to protect themselves in Indiana. Legislators have filed a bill that would prohibit cities and counties from passing humane pet store ordinances and it would erase the 13 ordinances that are already in place. Can the dogs count on you to send two emails (or make two calls) today? All you have to do is say that you are an Indiana resident and you oppose SB134/HB1121 and don’t want to see your state protecting the puppy mill industry. It is crucial that cities and counties retain their right to local control.Senator Jean Leising317-232-9493[email protected]Representative Mike Aylesworth317-234-9139[email protected]Let us know that you emailed/called and please share!

Public Health System in Indiana. Scenario: Life expectancy in Indiana is almost 2 years below the national average. In 2021, Governor Holcomb convened a special commission for recommendations on addressing this. They recommended spending $242 million/ year on restructuring the public health care system. This investment would move Indiana from its current rank of 45th in funding public health to the US average. His recently released budget requests one half the recommendation. Not off to a good start to addressing this public health crisis. The "fiscally responsible" legislature will probably cut that. Data shows that for every dollar spent on public health there is a $7 to $14 return on investment. Money invested on public health directly saves lives. Reach out to your state legislators and ask them to support investment in public health. Source Richmond Palladium Item January 5, 2023, front page. See MoreSee Less
