LSPA Update: HB 766
THANK YOU LSPA MEMBERS! Because of your help and the tireless efforts of members of the EC and Governmental Relations Committee, several amendments in HB 766 include clarifying language to serve students and educators in Louisiana. Not all of our desired language was included and LA House Bill 766 passed through the legislative branch and now will head to the governor. This bill concerns outside behavioral and mental health services to be provided in schools. To read the bill and the several amendments fully, click here.
