Bill Caption

Relating to proclamations for the production of instructional materials and selection of instructional materials by public schools.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 663 would stipulate that the State Board of Education (SBOE), for any fiscal biennium, may only issue proclamations (requests for production) for educational materials in which the total projected cost of the instructional materials under the proclamations does not exceed 75% of the total amount used to fund the instructional materials and technology allotment fund.

In determining the disbursement of money to the available school fund and the amount of the disbursement that will be used to fund instructional materials and technology allotment, the SBOE must consider the cost of all instructional materials and technology requirements for that fiscal year. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

CSHB 663 is an administrative bill with no apparent connection to our liberty principles, for this reason we remain neutral.
