HB 21 to Be Heard in Senate Education Committee on Friday

08.08.2017 — After participating in a press conference Tuesday morning in which he indicated that the Senate was set on creating a commission on school finance to further study the problems of the school finance system rather than supporting current House proposals that would take steps now to fix the broken system, Senate Education Committee Chair Larry Taylor, standing in as presiding officer of the Senate, sent HB 21, the House's school finance bill (which was given final approval by that chamber on Monday) to his committee for consideration.

Later in the afternoon, the Senate Education Committee posted a public hearing for 9 a.m., Friday, August 11, on HB 21.

Watch the live hearing.
