HB 839, Surveying Political Bias on College Campuses - 

In Progress

HB 839 would require the Board of Governors to conduct annual surveys of political opinions among faculty and students. The bill was introduced by the Education Committee, chaired by Representative O'Toole. As of April 29, 2019, the bill is on temporary hold. 

HB 6007, Guns on Campus - 

Not Passed

HB 6007 would have removed existing langauge that barrs firearms from college campuses. This bill was introduced by Representative Sabotini and died in the Criminal Justice Subcommittee on May 3, 2019.

HB 25, De-certification of Teacher's Unions - 

Passed 2018

HB 25 was passed in summer 2018, and automatically decertified any public-sector union that failed to achieve 50% dues paying members.

This was a harsh blow to UFF. Thankfully, this bill did not include higher education. But, GAU expects this bill to come back.
