On Mar. 6, SB224 was introduced to nullify Common Core educational standards in the state of Kentucky. (learn more about it here) It was promptly referred to the Education Committee where it will need to pass through a majority before the full senate can vote on it.
YOUR HELP IS NEEDED! It doesn’t matter where in Kentucky you live, ACT NOW!
1. Call the Committee Chair, Mike Wilson. Strongly, but respectfully urge him to move this important bill forward to a vote in his committee. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.

2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on SB224. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why. If they’re undecided, let them know you’ll call back in a few days.

3. Call Back – any NO or UNDECIDED – in 3-4 days. Ask if they’ve had a chance to review the legislation and what their opposition might be. Comment below or contact us at http://ask.tenthamendmentcenter.com with any information you get.
4. SHARE this information widely. By facebook, twitter, email, and more.
5. Write a letter to the editor. Look up your local newspaper and submit a letter to the editor voicing your support for SB224. It is essential to keep KY schools from being completely usurped by unaccountable, corrupt federal bureaucrats. Passing SB224 will make that happen.
