Vote NO on HB372 on Feb. 17
Dear [title] [last name],
Please, vote NO on HB372 on February 17 in the Public Service and Employees Subcommittee.
This bill allows state and local government employees to opt out of training sessions that they say conflict with their beliefs.
One important training area involves diversity, inclusion, and non-discrimination. This legislation opens state and local government up to more lawsuits over discrimination when incidents occur. These training sessions serve as an important shield for the public.
The bill is written widely enough that it potentially affects every kind of training that state and local governments provide for their employees, including critical compliance training sessions. It is hard to know the full implications of such as a broadly worded bill.
Thank you for considering my views.
