The state Legislature is scheduled to meet next on Aug. 6. The House did not meet this week and the Senate held a pro-forma session with no voting. So, rather than votes, this Roll Call Report describes some topical school-related bills of interest. All bills were referred to a committee.


Senate Bill 1038: Suspend state 11th/12th grade math/reading tests. Introduced by Sen. Rosemary Bayer (D), to suspend in the coming school year a law that requires public schools to administer a state learning assessment exam to all students in either 11th or 12th grade.
