So Kemp approves a bill to force women to have babies, then vetos a bill to provide kids playtime

Georgia's governor vetoes a bill requiring elementary schools to have recess every day

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has vetoed a bill that would have required recess in elementary schools across the state.

The bill, Georgia House Bill 83 would have “provide[d] for recess for students in kindergarten and grades one through five” starting in the 2019-2020 school year.

The bill also encouraged schools to “include an average of 30 minutes per day of supervised unstructured activity time, preferably outdoors” and said local boards of education should implement policies to “ensure that recess is a safe experience for students, that recess is scheduled so that it provides a break during academic learning, and that recess is not withheld for disciplinary or academic reasons.”

Governor Kemp, in explaining the veto, said that local school boards of education currently set recess policies for students in kindergarten through eighth grade in Georgia “based on a thorough understanding of day-to-day educational operations as well as regular interaction with administrators, educators, families, and students.”

Kemp said the new bill would take control away from those school boards.

The bill passed by a vote of 160-11 in the House and 48-4 in the Senate before reaching the governor.

5. They don't care about kids or "life" in general.

They are misogynists who can't stand women having the final say and power over anything as important as human reproduction.
