Compulsory Attendance Age Bill is Sailing Through Senate

The Illinois Senate Education Committee approved the compulsory attendance bill Wednesday afternoon.  It was an 8-5 vote and the discussion was disappointing, at best.

The Illinois Senate passed through the Second Reading of SB 1307 soon after convening yesterday afternoon. There were no committee or floor amendments attached to the bill.

Today, the Senate convenes at 10 am and SB 1307 is on the calendar for the final and Third Reading.  

If you haven't already, please call.  If our representative majority continues rushing this bill through, we can at least let the other House know what they should expect.  At some point, our representatives will have to listen to their constituents, even in Illinois.
