An Act Regarding Free Expression (S.2528/H.4229) 

When signed into law, An Act regarding free expression would prevent book removal due to personal or political views in public and school libraries. Further, it would empower school librarians and teachers to determine access to age-appropriate materials in school libraries. Public libraries would be required to adopt the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights. The legislation would also protect librarians from retaliation.

An Act to Increase Access to Disposable Menstrual Products in Prisons, Homeless Shelters and Public Schools (S.1381/H.534)

The I AM bill would ensure access to free menstrual products to all menstruating individuals in prisons, homeless shelters and public schools from 6th-12th grade. The bill also contains language to ensure the products are truly accessible without stigmatizing the individual seeking them.
