    1. Please note that links for some of these bills are still the the “RS forms”, which simply means it is a draft.   Once a committee votes in favor to “print the bill”, it will be assigned a formal bill number.  It is not trackable until it is assigned a bill number.  We will update this page once they are assigned a bill number, and you can follow it through the process. To become law, the bills will need to pass committees of both houses and by majority vote of both the House and the Senate. 

RECORDED CALL:

Cindy wasn’t able to talk during the call and sent in: I’m travelling so not able to talk.  STEMIdaho.org is my very small non-profit. I do a lot of re-tweeting and Facebook sharing @STEMIdaho so there is one location you can view what organizations and teachers around the state are sharing.  I’m starting to do more specific work on gender and diversity including the National Girls Collaborative and Million Women Mentors both of which are specifically STEM oriented.
