HB209 Bill Highlights
We are currently witnessing encroachment of the Federal Government into the Utah Education System. When Utah takes grant money from the Federal Government, the Federal Government then has control over how that money is used and starts to dictate what our teachers teach through that money. This bill would also "create the Federal Program Reserve Account to augment or replace federal funding that is rejected by the Legislature" to help make Utah self-reliant, allowing Utah to continue to teach its own curriculum and run its own programs without relying on Federal Money.
HB209 ensures that the powers of the state are not overrun by the federal government. Federal money has strings attached and we need someone to watch when that funding violates Utah law, so we can reject it.
