HB 1152 to be amended by Senate with charter school language
Republicans in the Mississippi Senate, not satisfied with the defeat of charter schools legislation in the House Education Committee moments ago, will amend HB 1152, a conversion charter schools bill. The amendment will purportedly be a strike-all amendment that will add the language of the now-dead charter schools bill to HB 1152. Should the amendment be successful and the Senate pass HB 1152 as amended, HB 1152 will go on the House calendar for concurrence or nonconcurrence. The House will then have a straight up or down vote on the charter schools language.
