Dear Friends of NCSE,

The "monkey bill" in Tennessee is enacted, although without the
governor's signature. Plenty of boos for the new law ensued.
Previously there were continued calls from the state's newspapers and
a petition signed by thousands of concerned Tennesseans urging a veto
of the bill. Plus the Steveometer passes 1200, and scientific and
educational organizations are voicing their opposition to the latest
antiscience legislative effort in Oklahoma.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Calls from civil liberties groups for a veto of the "monkey bill" in
Tennessee. A new attack on science education in Oklahoma. A survey on
the perceived importance of science education. The Los Angeles Times's
view of Tennessee's antiscience legislation. The death of a second
antiscience bill in Oklahoma. Views from across Tennessee on the
state's antiscience legislation. And congratulations to Lawrence
Krauss.
