The Common Education Committee of the Oklahoma House of Representatives will consider House Bill 1674 on Tuesday, February 19 at 10:30 a.m. Here I make it easy for Oklahomans who use a mail application to contact the committee members. Those of you who contacted the Senate Education Committee regarding the Oklahoma Science Education Act (Senate Bill 758) can quickly modify your note to apply to HB 1674. (Do please oppose SB 758, which has not yet been scheduled for consideration.)
My characterization of how the bills are related: SB 758 is essentially HB 1674 stripped of motivation, indications of legislative intent, examples of "scientific controversy," and the requirement that students learn what is in the curriculum. The author of HB 1674, Rep. Gus Blackwell, has in fact become a coauthor of SB 758.
