Attorney General Ruling Throws Wrench Into 3 Tier Plan
Cheyenne, Wy – A bill intended to give school districts control over graduation standards faces debate for a final time Friday. The bill also removes the three tier high school transcripts. But an Attorney General ruling that parts of the bill are in conflict with current law, is making Senators think twice about voting for the bill. Senators have been told that voting for it might also put them in conflict with a Supreme Court ruling on school reform. State Superintendent Trent Blankenship says he'd be upset if the bill gets defeated.
Senators also think the bill might have some other unintended consequences. Some planned on speaking with attorneys about the bill when the Senate adjourned.
