This bill directs State Board of Education to adopt rules that will require public high schools to provide free condoms to students

Personal Choice and Responsibility
This bill amounts to governmental interference on what must be a personal choice that a person must accept responsibility. A possible side effect of this bill is increased experimentation and emotional confusion.

Fiscal Responsibility
Will redirect a minor portion of high school’s budget to purchase and maintain condom dispensing facilities.

Local Control
This bill bypasses the local control of parents that have the responsibility of supervising and educating their children on the possible effects of teen pregnancy.
