This is a transcript of the video clips in which this bill is discussed.

TO CONSTANTLY POINT OUT THAT THIS LEGISLATION BANS BOOKS IS JUST FALSE. IT'S NOT ACCURATE. IT DOESN'T DO THAT. THIS IDEA OF A SLIPPERY SLOPE, LET ME TELL YOU. IT'S OUR JOB TO SET POLICY FOR SCHOOLS. THE CONSTITUTION GIVES US THAT AUTHORITY. IT'S VESTED IN THE BOARD OF EDUCATION, AND THEN IT'S VESTED IN THE LOCAL SCHOOL BOARD.

PRESIDENT, I WOULD SAY TO THE GENTLEMAN THAT THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION IN WASHINGTON IS HARD TO FIGURE WHAT THEIR PLANS ARE, BUT I WOULD SUGGEST THEY PROBABLY WOULD NOT BE INCLINED SO. THE SENATOR FROM FAIRFAX CAN MR. HE AGREE THAT THE CURRENT HEAD OF THE EPA WAS ACTUALLY A PLAINTIFF IN THE LAWSUIT THAT
