Aycock Pulls Down HB 1759, No Further Discussion This Session

05.14.2015 — After introducing HB 1759, the school finance reform bill, on the House floor today and engaging in discussion on it with lead budget writer Rep. John Otto, Rep. Jimmie Don Aycock postponed further discussion of his bill to July 4, 2015, effectively pulling the bill from consideration this session.

Aycock explained that his action was to avoid a long discussion (15-plus amendments had been filed for floor debate) that would take up time needed to pass other House bills, when the Senate would “almost certainly not even consider the measure” if it passed the House.
