Please Oppose Indiana SB 132



Please contact your Indiana state representative and ask them to oppose SB 132. It has passed the Senate and has been referred to the House of Representatives. If this bill passes, it will require that all high school students pass a civics test in order to get their diploma. As we understand it, the only accommodation that will be made is to allow students extra time to take the test. The test is to be modeled after the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services test. A link to that test can be found here: https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/USCIS/Office%20of%20Citizenship/Citizenship%20Resource%20Center%20Site/Publications/100q.pdf
