The following is shared from a Parents’ Campaign email from today:
Thank you to all those who called and emailed Speaker Gunn and your representatives to insist that they do the work we elected them to do: carefully consider, vet, and debate all legislation, particularly bills that affect the quality of education provided our children.
The Speaker and key legislators have been meeting since mid-morning, with the House in recess awaiting word of progress. The good news is that, minutes ago, Speaker Gunn returned to the chamber, announced that progress had been made, and adjourned the House for the weekend. They will return Monday at 2:00 p.m. to resume taking up bills. The Senate adjourned earlier in the day and will return Monday at 3:00 p.m.
Floor action will likely move quickly, so please be sure to contact your legislators and ask that they:
Vote NO on any bills that increase government bureaucracy, weaken public schools, and put our children’s education at risk.
Your legislators are:
Capitol Switchboard: 601.359.3770
Share the same message with Lt. Governor Reeves and Speaker Gunn:
Lt. Governor Reeves Capitol: 601.359.3200
Speaker Gunn Capitol: 601.359.3300
Mississippi children are so very fortunate to have you standing up for them and their schools.
Please call your representative and Speaker Gunn today, and ask your friends and family to call, too. Our children are relying on us to ensure that they have strong public schools to attend!
