(KCPW News) Conservative advocates successfully swayed the legislature’s Senate Education Committee to oppose a sex education bill under consideration this morning. And the effort was so successful the bill died before the committee even had an opportunity to vote. KCPW’s Elizabeth Ziegler reports from the State Capitol.
Opposition to changing the state’s current sex ed. policy was so strong at the committee meeting that a second substitute bill drafted by Senator Howard Stephenson wasn’t introduced either. It would have created an online reproductive health course that could be tailored to include as much, or as little, information about contraceptives as the law allows and parents deem fit.
