Gov. Butch Otter has signed HB 256 and HB 262 into law. The bills, as amended in the Senate, make changes in the formula for reimbursing school districts for student busing costs, and freeze teachers’ movement on the salary grid for experience for one year. The House accepted the Senate amendments, which removed clauses to eliminate an early teacher retirement incentive program and to permanently end funding for busing for school field trips.
