PE Bill Gets First Committee Hearing

Our bill to ensure all Minnesota students receive quality physical education is getting its first hearing! It will be heard on Wednesday, February 18, in the House K-12 Education Policy Committee.

If your Representative sits on this committee, please contact him/her to ensure we have their support for HF 439! Click on the link below to see if your Repsentative sits on this committee.

Ask your Representative to Support Quality Physical Education!

This committee hearing is the first step to ensuring all kids receive quality physical education across the state of Minnesota. HF 439 will ensure physical education is not eliminated from schools so our children have a chance to learn lifelong physical activities and healthy habits. Further, research has shown that students who participate in quality physical education have higher academic performance. Let your Representative know how important quality physical education is to the health and well-being of our kids.
