UPDATE ---6 SENATORS TO CONTACT!! -- HB 3399 Common Core

This is the most important target right now. Please call, email and go visit (if possible) these 6 Senators and TELL THEM WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE AMENDED IN THIS BILL!! (see recommendations in comments below) This committee is going to work with members of the House Education Committee to Amend HB 339. The meeting should take place very soon.

Conference Committee for HB 3399 -- Common Core Bill 
Senate members to the Committee were finally appointed today. They are:
Josh Brecheen -R, Durant -Author of Senate amendments rejected by House 
John Ford -R, Bartlesville -Chairman of Senate Ed. Committee 
Anthony Sykes- R, Moore -Co-Author of Senate Amendments rejected by House
Nathan Dahm -R, Broken Arrow -supported delay of Common Core not Repeal
Tom Ivester -D, Sayre -Opposes Common Core
Jerry Ellis -D, Hugo

All of these Senators voted for HB 3399 in the Senate which is of course the version which the House unanimously rejected and sent to this Conference Committee to be Amended.

Only 2 of these 6 Senators serve on the Senate Education Committee --Ford & Brecheen. Ford, as most of us know, has fought against stopping Common Core and has never changed his stated position. He agreed to let Brecheen's Senate Amendments on HB 3399 be approved and change the bill. The Governor then indicated that she would sign that version..... but as stated that is the version rightfully rejected by the Full House of Representatives and sent to this committee. 

Will any of these Senators fight for amendments? Even if they oppose Common Core they have been told repeatedly by Brecheen and others that the bill as they passed it to the House with Senate Amendments would repeal Common Core. IT DOES NOT. That is why the House rejected it!!!! Certainly Brecheen has made clear, by his article in the Durant newspaper on Sunday (re-posted in comments below), that he is still promoting "his bill". It indicates to me he has no intention of amending it. Every one of these Senators need to hear from their own constituents very loudly and all of us need to contact each one of them as soon as possible.
