Some bills were retained to be studied later this year (and the Cornerstone team will be watching!), and those bills will be voted on in early 2018. Others were tabled, and we could see the same subjects coming up next year.
- HB 478, The Bathroom Bill, on gender identity: tabled.
- HB 587, a ban on so-called “conversion therapy”: retained.
- HB 180, requiring post-secondary educational institutions to report on how many students require remedial courses, and where those students received high school education: retained.
- HB 287, to study the decriminalization of prostitution: retained.
- HB 396, student data privacy: tabled.
- HB 471, abortion statistics: retained.
- HB 578, restricting abortions after viability: tabled.
- SB 247, the lead-paint remediation bill: retained. This is the one that inexplicably provides remediation funds to landlords but not to homeowners. It also violates parental rights by mandating blood tests on children as a condition of school enrollment.
