Education Bills Wait In Limbo

Cheyenne, Wy – It's the last week of the legislative session and a number of education bills have not yet been finalized. They include a measure that sets up accountability standards for teachers, schools and students, a school funding bill, and a measure that changes the success curriculum that students need to complete in order to qualify for the Hathaway Scholarship. The Wyoming House and Senate must work out several differences in the bills in conference committees. While it might seem as though a couple of those bills are in trouble, House Education Chairman Matt Teeters says he's confident that differences will be worked out

"Yes, I think so we've still got a week," says Teeters. "We will spend the hours needed to make compromises. We will get the peoples work done, I'm not worried about that."

The legislative session is scheduled to end on Friday.
