Good news: it looks like the horrible instructional materials bills filed in the state legislature are stuck in the mud. Insiders who are much more knowledgeable about the inner workings of Tallahassee told me that the bills have several committees to get through. Because they have yet to be put on the meeting schedule in any of them this late in the session, the bills’ chances of passage are slim.
And another good sign is that the bills’ main supporter, Florida Citizens Alliance, has angrily reported that the bills are being blocked.
However, victory can’t be declared until the session is over. There are plenty of sneaky tactics for resurrecting dead bills, such as adding them to other successful bills as amendments.
