Oppose SB 656

I strongly oppose SB 656. The law is vague in nature and takes the trust out of the hands of our teachers and librarians. I fear that this law will lead to opportunities to wrongly censor important education material.  I also believe this law will have a negative impact on LBGBTQ by putting an unfair limit on freedom of thought and basic human rights.
