Senate Joint Resolution 9 that would return the oversight of public education to a State Board of Education passed the Senate Education Committee 6-1. It now moves to the Senate Floor. The bill is a bipartisan effort with sponsors Bill Soules (D) and Steven Neville (R). Should the resolution pass it would go before the voters in the next general election.
