Bills like this are causing the costs of public education to skyrocket. This is a TERRIBLE Bill that should be stopped.
Per the session information website:
Student health measurements. Requires each school corporation to report certain student health data to the state department of health beginning in 2007. Requires the state department to publish an annual report summarizing the data. (The introduced version of this bill was prepared by the health finance commission).
This idiotic Bill will require EVERY school corporation to annually report to the state department of health the height, weight, ethnicity, age, and sex of the school corporation's students.
This is another stupid idea that will only further increase our property taxes.
This Bill was written by Senator Dillon from Columbia City. He is a Republican. This is a great example of how out of touch the Republcian Party is with its smaller government stance of 1994...
