Subject: Education Committee Meeting Today - Pls vote no to HB164
Date: Tue Feb 16 14:32:26 MST 2016
Body:


Hello,


I am asking that you vote No on HB 164 in the Education Committee today.  Regardless of your feelings on State Testing, Data Collection and more this bill takes away a parents right to make choices involving their child.  The proposed law no longer allows parents to opt their child out of State Testing.  It is the start of a slippery slope of the Government deciding what is best for a child regardless.  If you have a child or grandchild that you love would you want someone else making decisions about them and taking that right away from you?  Please vote no to HB164


Sincerely

Melissa Wallace
