Senate HELP (Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions) committee staff, Republican and Democrat, held a briefing today and indicated that the Senate bill is still being drafted and will not be introduced this week. As of now it looks like the bill will be introduced after the recess, maybe Monday June 2, but probably during that week. The bill will be formally introduced, provided a number and will probably be posted on the website of the Senate HELP committee *<> before it is posted on Thomas.
Following the bill's introduction, there will be a two week period during which committee staff will consider suggestions from parents and advocates.
They still intend to finish the Committee work by the end of June.
Feedback from the community on the bill during that 2 week period is encouraged. Meetings will be set up during the first week after release but they prefer that any documents (written comments etc. ) be sent via email.  *You can find your senators at  (Choose your state from the drop-down list.)
