Legislative Actions on Education

Overview

Legislative Action

SREB tracks and reports on actions on education issues by state lawmakers across the SREB region. Based on research and meetings with state leaders during their legislative sessions, issues of the Legislative Report detail recent governors’ proposals, bills and funding actions. The Legislative Briefing presents these actions by topic annually. 

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.
