Rick Phillips [Protect My Innocence]
The reading material in question that has been shown during this session has no educational value for young children. It's a form of indoctrination used to sexualize the innocent. We support moving HF597 to the governor's desk for signing.
Oliver Bardwell [Iowans 4 Freedom]
Please vote YES for HF 597. Movies, TV and video games, are all rated by their age appropriateness. The current and convoluted book "reconsideration process" has failed. This no nonsense legislation will solve many of the problems that we have been seeing with sexually graphic content being accessible to children in our public school systems.
