Dear IAHPERD Members,
House Bill 440 Eliminates PE Requirements
HB 440 (Chief Sponsor Representative Ives)
Step One: File a witness slip as OPPONENT HB 440
- Even if you have already filed a witness slip it is time to file another. We may need to do this multiple times. Unfortunately each time the committee recesses the witness slips reset to zero.
- When filling out the witness slip please identify yourself as a citizen or voter instead of teacher or IAHPERD member.
Step Two: contact your State legislators either by phone or email
If you don't know who your State legislators are the following link will help you find that information:
Be sure to contact your State (the one with a Springfield office) not US legislator (the one with an office in Washington, DC).
If you are not sure how to fill out a witness slip, please see iahperd.org
