Education Bill Moves On Despite Protests
Education reform is a big topic in the current legislative session, and lawmakers voted on the governor's bill this week. Governor Tomblin's bill cleared the Senate Education Committee, despite rallies from teachers' unions against it. The bill now heads to the Senate Finance Committee, and if it clears that, it would go to the full Senate. After that, the House would get a chance to comb over the bill and propose any changes.
