House, Senate To Negotiate On Bill To Reopen Schools

A bill requiring school districts to offer in-person instruction was sent back to the negotiation table this afternoon after members of the Senate voted not to concur with changes made to the bill in the House. Senate Bill 37 (S37), which is fully summarized by legislative staff here, quickly moved through various committees this week with limited amendments, and House lawmakers approved the revised version this afternoon in a 74-44 vote.
