***Developing throughout the afternoon - Votes still not there on charter schools
This was the scene moments ago when the House Education Committee began its meeting today to take up the charter schools bill, SB 2401. Rep. John Moore (R - Brandon), the chairman of the committee, decided that the vote would be put off until another meeting of the committee later this afternoon. That is a big signal that there still are not enough votes to pass the charter schools bill out of the committee, and that Rep. Steve Massengill (R - Hickory Flat) is standing his ground.
