Constitutional Amendment to Allow BOE to Approve Charters Defeated on Senate Floor

Senator Obenshain's constitutional amendment to allow the BOE to approve charter schools, SJ302, was defeated on the floor of the Senate today.  The bill died on a vote of 20-19-1.  Constitutional amendments require the vote of a majority of the members elected - in other words, 21 votes. The VSBA opposed this measure.
