Legislative Update (3-29-2019)
Final Action of 2019 General Assembly

Sine die is Latin for “without day.” When a legislature adjourns sine die, it is adjourning indefinitely or without designating a day for a future meeting. The General Assembly 2019 met for their final legislative day on March 28. The bills they passed will now be delivered to the Governor who can sign, veto, or allow bills to become law without his signature.

The new laws take effect 90 days after the legislature adjourned on March 28 unless there is an Emergency Clause and they take effect immediately. Thus, most of the new laws will take effect on or about June 26, 2019.

Thank you for all your phone calls and emails to legislators. We know that your actions helped defeat SB 3 this session. KASC is disappointed that SB 250 passed--that is the bill that applies only to Jefferson County Public Schools and allows the superintendent to have the final say on the selection of principals. We must continue to reach out to legislators to educate them on the impact of SBDM. We fully expect bills like SB 3 to be filed in the future.

Today is the tenth in a series of weekly legislative emails to keep you informed about relevant education bills. KASC has tracked numerous bills that have direct impact on teaching and learning for teachers, parents, principals, students, and councils.
