Constitutional Amendment on Charter Schools Makes it Out of Committee

This evening the Senate Privileges and Elections Committee voted 8-4 to report SJR 302 (Obenshein) a constitutional amendment that would permit the Board of Education to establish charter schools. This is one of several such proposals. It is important to note that bills proposing constitutional amendments must pass both this and next year before they can go on the ballot.
