Bill Activity History – HB 2336
1/21/16 Introduced and Read First Time
1/25/16 Read Second Time

2/15/16 Special Committee on Urban Issues – Did not hear
2/22/16 –Special Committee on Urban Issues – Hearing scheduled for Monday, February 22nd
HB 2336, Show Me Good Grades would give the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) authority over all Missouri students applying for a Missouri driver license by setting grade qualifications which would be required in order for a 15-18 year old student to apply for an operator’s license or permit.
This would put home schoolers in a precarious position. DESE’s authority should remain limited to public education only. They should not be granted authority or control over nonpublic students or who can have driving privileges.
