Legislative Actions on Education


Legislative Action

SREB tracks and reports on the most recent education issues and actions by lawmakers across the 16-state SREB region. Based on research and meetings with SREB-state leaders during their legislative sessions, Legislative Reports detail the most recent governors’ proposals, bills and funding for education in the member states. The Legislative Briefing presents these actions by topic. 

Legislators, governors’ staffs and other policy-makers often turn to SREB for the latest information on education issues. State senators, representatives, their staff members and others may contact SREB State Services staff for assistance at any time.
