Chair Rhoads, Vice-Chair Har and Committee Members:
The League of Women Voters of Hawaii supports SB 744 which expands prohibition against student bias in educational and recreational programs supported by the State or our Counties.
It is a core position of the League of Women Voters that we support equal access to education (and by extension to public recreation programs). We hope that this specific extension of our current Education statutes supports an equitable, quality public education experience for all Hawaii students. We urge you to pass this bill. Thank you for the opportunity to submit testimony.
