HB 1419-FN is a bill that prohibits the distribution of obscene or harmful sexual materials in schools. It requires each local school board to adopt a complaint resolution policy to address complaints from parents or guardians regarding harmful material provided to students. The bill also establishes an appeals process for aggrieved parents or guardians and allows for civil actions and damages to be awarded to successful petitioners. The bill will take effect on January 1, 2025. The Department of Justice anticipates increased demands and litigation costs, while the Department of Education cannot estimate the impact on local school districts.
