Education Bill Stalls In Cheyenne
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A committee of lawmakers is taking another stab at trying to solve differences between the state House and Senate on an education reform bill as the Legislature winds down.
The state House approved Senate File 57 on Tuesday, but the state Senate declined Wednesday to OK all the changes representatives made to the bill.
A conference committee made up of members from each chamber failed to settle the differences Wednesday afternoon. They are trying again Thursday morning.
The overall proposal advances Wyoming's effort to help make its public school students better prepared for college and careers after high school.
Lawmakers say the bill is another step in a multiyear education reform process that will require more work by the Legislature next year.
