STATUS – Referred to the Education Committee where it will need to pass by majority vote before the full Senate can consider it.
YOUR ACTION IS NEEDED NOW. It doesn’t matter where in Mississippi you live, take these actions today.
1. Call the Committee Chair, Gray Tollison. Strongly, but respectfully urge him to move this important bipartisan 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 SB2736. 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.

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 SB2736. It is essential that Mississippi resists Common Core and its federalization of the education system. Passing SB2736 will make that happen.
