Long, but successful day!

I’m hoping that this will be the longest day of the session.  I was at work before 6 and am posting this after 9, BUT it was a good day.  Two VEA bills advanced from House Education subcommittees on unanimous votes.
 
HB 1889, Jim LeMunyon’s bill to shield teacher professional growth indicators from Freedom of Information Act request reported on a 6-0 vote.  Some of you may recall the tragic story of the LA teacher suicide after his scores were released in the LA Times.  If LeMunyon’s bill passes you won’t have to worry about your PGI being in the local paper.
YEAS--LeMunyon, Bell, Richard P., Robinson, Yost, Yancey, Keam--6.

NAYS--0.

ABSTENTIONS--0.

NOT VOTING--Cole, McClellan, Morrissey--3.

Our anti-bullying bill, HB 1871, also reported unanimously and is headed to full committee on Monday.
YEAS--Bell, Richard P., Landes, Stolle, Robinson, Yost, Morrissey, Keam, Hester--8.

NAYS--0.

ABSTENTIONS--0.

NOT VOTING--0.

More tomorrow – the first subcommittee is at 7 and I need sleep.
