Elphaba, read the entire list in the bill and tell us what group could be considered left out and open to persecution.

To the people who disagree to my April 11th post, I would like to inform you the facts were taken directly from the bill. The bill establishes the committee and is funded by a $1million appropriation. Every policy bill has to have a fiscal note created prior to discussion and passing both houses of the legislature. This is done by the non-partisan House of Representatives fiscal staff. I am just repeating what was produced and passed. Your disagreement is with them, not me.

Should have put "sexuality" first in your editorial.... as this is primarily a 'gay-push' agenda. Pity the child raised in a traditonal home. That child, will be made to feel rejected and blamed and eventually hated and vilified if she doesn't walk the 'goosestep' with the others.

What the article did not tell you is that the bill created an unfunded mandate to the school districts in the estimated cost of $20 million. Local school taxpayers will have to pick that cost up. Wonder who the governor will appoint to the 20 member committee who will be responsible for creating and writing the regulations the schools must follow.
