Power to Parents has been on the front lines fighting the extreme left CCSD School Board against vaccine mandates, against restorative justice, and against other radical and destructive agenda items. P2P just issued the 2023 Nevada Legislative report: We are closely watching the following bills, starting with the bad ones. Parental Rights Bills SB= Senate Bill AB= Assembly Bill Oppose: SB74 – Grants grandparents and great-grandparents rights to their grand-children. . Parents have a fundamental right to direct the upbringing of their child. This bill would violate that right. SB172– Revises provisions governing the ability of a minor to consent to certain health care services for the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy. Parents have a fundamental right to direct the medical treatment of their child. This is a dangerous bill for children. SB163 – Requires certain health insurance to cover treatment of certain conditions relating to gender dysphoria, gender incongruence and other disorders of sexual development. Power2Parent recommends the following amendment: Amendment section 2 (a)-(d) and require written approval by both parents and/or all legal guardians. Education Bills Oppose: AB175– Revises provisions governing boards of trustees of school districts (Yurek and Axelrod). CCSD and WCSD boards would no longer be all elected; proposes 4 elected and 3 appointed. SB65– Requires a candidate for the office of trustee of a school district to obtain and file certain certifications; revising provisions governing certain training for professional development required for the members of boards of trustees of school districts and candidates for the office of trustee of a school district. Creates an undue barrier to obtain public office, could potentially create a barrier for parents. Support: AB65– This bill removes the requirement for a public school to provide a plan of action based on restorative justice. School violence has risen 47% since restorative justice discipline was implemented. This is a positive step towards school safety. SB149 – Requires the board of trustees of each school district and the governing body of each charter school to prepare a plan to improve the proficiency of pupils in the subject area of mathematics. School Boards must have a plan to improve Math and Reading. SB152 – Revises discipline of pupils, removes the age at which a student can receive progressive disciple. Current law only allows progressive discipline beginning at 11 yrs old. Our goal is to give an honest assessment of what is happening during this legislative session.
