State Rep. Bob Bezotte of Marion Township is urging the Michigan Association of School Boards to formally withdraw from the National School Boards Association (NSBA).
In a letter sent by Bezotte and more than 30 other state legislators, concerns were raised about the NSBA comparing concerned parents to “domestic terrorists” in a letter to the Biden administration.
“Out of respect for Michigan parents and students, the Michigan Association of School Boards should immediately withdraw its membership from the NSBA,” Bezotte said. “Parents know what is best for their children, and they have every right to advocate on their behalf. That most certainly does not make them domestic terrorists. The rhetoric the NSBA is pushing is unacceptable and simply cannot be tolerated.”
The letter Bezotte signed reads, in part: “While the NSBA has recently scrambled to apologize for its offensive letter to the Department of Justice (DOJ), new developments reveal NSBA officials coordinated with White House and DOJ officials for weeks to iron out the details of the letter before it was officially published. Knowing this backstory, their apology was clearly insincere. Contrary to their talking points, this letter does represent the views and the will of the NSBA. …
“Parents deserve better than this from their local schools. The NSBA’s view of them as ‘domestic terrorists’ is offensive to millions of Michigan families who are properly invested in their children’s lives.”

Senate Bill 147 expands the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to create protections for elective abortions. It requires employers who provide health […]
Our court systems and criminal justice procedures have changed quite a bit over the last decade due to modern technology and state policy reforms. One area of the justice system that hasn’t evolved with the times are our laws addressing the rights of crime victims. I worked very closely with families who were hurt by […]
Our troops are selfless and courageous. Considering all the sacrifices they make for our country, providing a way for veterans to enjoy the great outdoors when they return home is just one of the many ways we can show our gratitude. That’s why I am co-sponsoring legislation that would allow veterans to obtain hunting and […]
As I sit down to write this update, it’s Thursday morning and the House is preparing to vote this afternoon on a package of bills to create extreme risk protection orders. The partisan plan, brought forward by the Democrat majority, creates a process that allows the government to seize weapons from any individual who others […]
