I'm heading into House Education with the Secretary of State and the Social Studies Coordinator from the Dept. of Education. We've been asked to update the committee on the progress of civic and law related education. As you know the VBA has been very active in this type of outreach. Our President Doug Molde and our Public Education Section Chair Mike Palmer are big supporters. And VBA staff member Kevin Ryan has been nationally recognized for his work. This afternoon I'll be sitting in on House Judiciary's hearing on judicial branch restructuring. Acting Court Administrator Bob Greemore will be updating the committee on the Commission on Judicial Operations work. Take another look at the memo from Eileen Blackwood and me from last week and get involved in this discussion.
