Require written parental permission for sex education

HB 239: Define scope/boundaries of human sexuality/reproduction education K-12.

Analysis by Rewire.News: HB 239 would have required a school district to obtain written consent from a parent before instructing students in human sexuality education. HB 239 would have also prohibited school districts from allowing any abortion services provider from offering any materials at schools.

Veto message:The Montana Constitution vests supervision and control of our public schools in locally elected school boards. HB 239 would improvidently intrude upon the constitutional authority of the Board of Public Education and local boards. If parents are concerned about matters relating to the education of their children, they can and should address those concerns with their local school board.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 28-22-0 on Apr/8/13; State Sen. Matt Rosendale voted YES; Passed House 56-41-3 on Apr/13/13; Vetoed by Governor Steve Bullock on Apr/25/13

Oppose paid family leave, according to PVS survey.

Rosendale opposes the PVS survey question on paid medical leave

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Health Care: Do you support requiring businesses to provide paid medical leave during public health crises, such as COVID-19?'

Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
