HB 557, a bill protecting the rights of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children, is still NOT on the calendar. If it doesn’t get on today the calendar today then it is guaranteed to NOT become law this year, and we NEED this protection!
If you have called Senator Dempsey, thank you. I am asking that you call again. If you have not called him, NOW is your chance.
Senator Dempsey will not be in Jefferson City for the last two days of this legislative session, Thursday and Friday. He is the one in charge of deciding what goes onto the Senate Calendar, so we must act right away!
Please make a brief and polite phone call to Senator Dempsey, the president pro tem, urging him to get this bill onto the senate calendarTODAY for a third read and a vote. His office number is (573) 751-1141. You don’t need to necessarily speak to the senator. A message with his staff would be sufficient.
I would also encourage you to contact your own senator and encourage him to speak to Senator Dempsey about the importance of getting this bill on the calendar. You can look up your senator here.
Here are some ideas of what you could say to Senator Dempsey and to your senator…
Families are counting on you to get HB 557 onto the Senate calendar! Please place this bill on the Senate calendar so that there is an opportunity to protect parental rights in statute this session!
