Michigan House Bill 4382

House Bill 4382 was introduced in the legislature in February 2001, and referred to the Education Committee. As of this writing, a hearing in committee is not expected in the near future. HB 4382 would revise Michigan's curriculum content standards to indicate that evolution and natural selection are "unproven theories". In addition, it provides that, along with those "unproven theories", students should be taught "... the theory that life is the result of the purposeful, intelligent design of a creator". Among the ten co-sponsors of this bill are four members of the Education Committee, including its chair.
