Update 2-21-13
The Celebrate Freedom Week bill (S.B. 68) was voted out of both the Senate Education Academic Achievement Subcommittee and the full Senate Youth and Education Committee today! The bill passed out of the subcommittee in the morning and was then scheduled for a hearing before the Senate Youth and Education Committee in the afternoon. The Celebrate Freedom Week bill is expected to be voted before the full Senate at the beginning of next week.

Action Needed!
Please contact your state senator before Monday, February 25 and urge him/her to vote in favor of S.B. 68.

Background on S.B. 68
Sen. William Ligon (R-Brunswick) has introduced S.B. 68, appropriately named “Celebrate Freedom Week”. S.B. 68 would recognize the entire week in September that coincides with Constitution Day as Celebrate Freedom Week and provide Georgia students with a week-long emphasis on the principles of our founding documents.

Here are a few examples of what students would experience during Celebrate Freedom Week:

In-depth study of the intent, meaning, and importance of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution, including the Bill of Rights Study of the Founding Fathers, such as the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution Daily recitations from the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, or the Bill of Rights

Pray that the senators on the Education and Youth Committee will support a common sense bill that seeks to educate Georgia students on the founding principles of this country.
