2023 ASBSD Billtracker Update: Week Two

After the second week of the 2023 legislative session, the ASBSD Billtracker is up to 22-pieces of legislation being tracked.


Learn how ASBSD Billtracker works here.


Of those 22 legislative proposals on the list, there’s seven we’re supporting, six being opposed and nine being monitored.  Below is a breakdown of key bills ASBSD is tracking so far, with the blue text being links to additional webpages with more information.


What’s new:

  • Senate Bill 76: Includes teachers, administrators and other educational professionals to the licensure endorsement process. ASBSD is supporting the bill, which has been assigned to the Senate Commerce & Energy committee, as it could help bring more teachers into the state and help more individuals get licensed to teach.
  • House Bills 1095 and 1096: Both propose lowering the sales tax on groceries to 3.5 percent and 2.5 percent respectively. ASBSD is opposing both bills, which each have been assigned to the House Taxation committee, based on our resolution Tax Reduction or Repeal that resists a reduction or repeal without a new revenue source to replace the lost revenue. These bills make up a trio related to the grocery tax along with House Bill 1075, which proposes a full repeal.

What’s proceeding:

What’s on posted Committee meeting agendas:

In addition, the Joint Appropriations Committee will hold the budget hearing for the Department of Education, which will include a review of the proposed 5 percent increase to state aid, on Wednesday (1/25) at 9 a.m. Please note: committee agendas could be amended and a new agenda posted following the most recent meeting.


The Billtracker page will be updated almost daily, so be sure to check it throughout the week to stay up-to-date with legislative session and legislation effecting public education.
