Late Friday night the Texas House approved several measures that would greatly weaken physical education and health in schools. Saturday afternoon, the same legislation was scheduled for discussion and a second vote, but we have learned it will happen today (probably early afternoon).
The American Heart Association is working hard to defeat this measure and protect the health of every Texas student, but we need your help. Please call your State Representative and tell them to Keep PE standards strong in HB400 and protect the health of Texas Students.
