House passes two more ‘trailer’ bills to earlier school reform bills

The third “trailer bill” to add an emergency clause to already-passed school reform bills, HB 345, has passed the House on a 50-18 vote. This bill adds the emergency clause to SB 1184, the measure that shifts funds from teacher salaries to technology boost and a performance-pay plan. The bill now moves to the Senate. Also, the House has voted 42-26 in favor of HB 315, legislation from Rep. Ken Roberts, R-Donnelly, to amend already-passed SB 1108 to partially protect school districts that have sharp enrollment drops next year, while dropping the measure's requirement to pay 10 percent severance to teachers laid off due to enrollment drops. That bill, too, moves to the Senate.
