a democrat? by Anonymous Citizen on September 3, 2006 All businesses that accept fees for services rendered ought to be held to some kind of regulations - especially schools. HB 6014 would allow a guy to accept money from kids in return for a product he calls a "degree" without oversight, without capitalization, without even meeting the most basic health and safety requirements. This is absurd. The school in question simply refuses to follow existing law. Why? Do they feel they can operate above the law because they claim to be Christians? HB 6375 simply requires that the existing law (very modest regs, by the way) be followed. Why HB 6375 is being introduced now, however, is confusing.
