House Bill 3, the House version of the Omnibus Accountability Bill was referred to the Senate Education Committee for review on Monday, is now up for a public hearing. The hearing is scheduled for Thursday, May 7th at 11 a.m. or upon adjournment in room E1.028. The companion bill in the senate, SB 3, has also passed to engrossment and was referred to the House Public Education Committee yesterday. It is believed that testimony on HB 3 will impact both bills as the language in the Senate bill may be incorporated into its House counterpart.

House Bill 710, which seeks to place the State Board of Education under periodic review by the Sunset Advisory Commission, was approved by the House yesterday. It has been passed to engrossment for review on the Senate floor. The Senate companion bill, SB 513, remains in committee.
