Senators unanimously passed Senate Bill 158 on to their legislative counterparts. The bill would provide state funding for students in treatment centers and clarifies the discrepancy that funding for the student in the treatment center is provided by the home district.
ASBSD supports the bill and will continue to watch its progress in the House.
House Bill 1113 did not fare as well in the House, however. On Tuesday, the bill failed to gain a majority vote among representatives and was filed for reconsideration. The additional night did not change the minds of enough representatives and HB 1113 lost its reprieve vote.
