The Safe and Supportive Minnesota Schools Act will get its second committee hearing of the year on Wednesday.

The bill has been the target of religious right and Tea Party groups largely because of protections for LGBT students. The bill passed the Senate Education Committee last week after amendments to the bill were offered. Here are the details for Wednesday’s hearing:

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 – 8:30 AM

Committee on Finance
Chair: Sen. Richard Cohen
8:30 a.m.
Room 123 Capitol

S.F. 1765-Jensen: Information technology certification partnership program requirements and appropriation.

H.F. 826-Dibble: Safe and Supportive Minnesota Schools Act.
