Please help us fill the room with a show of support for this important legislation that would afford School Districts around the state to better serve disengaged young people by offering them opportunities to farm land, self & community!
If you plan to attend, please arrive at House Hearing Room A in the John L O’Brien building on the Capitol Campus by 1:30PM and sign-in in favor of HB 1568. Please do NOT sign in to testify. We have 3 speakers lined up and have received a special request from Representative Reykdal that we keep our air time to a minimum so that the agenda can move forward.
