Update (May 8, 2018):
The legislative session is quickly coming to a close. It is harder to track bills at this point, since much is rolled into large omnibus bills, including HF4328 and SF3656.
But there's still time to contact your state senators and representatives about issues that impact social studies instruction in Minnesota. Session ends May 21, so call soon!
Visit the Minnesota Legislature website to read about three provisions related to social studies education in Minnesota, and to find your elected officials' contact information.
Specific social studies funding is included in the education bill (Sections 2231, 2232, and 2233) that was negotiated in conference, between the House and the Senate. Contact information for members of Congress is listed below.
