Appointed schools chief bill heads to Indiana Senate again

Bosma's original House bill had set a date of 2021 for the now elected position to become a post appointed by the governor.

An Indiana Senate bill that faced widespread criticism for its prohibition of so-called "sanctuary campus" policies at Indiana colleges and universities is now headed to the full House for consideration, though in a much different form than what was considered by the Senate.

The Texas Senate has temporarily approved modifications to the state's voter ID law, incorporating some changes ordered after federal courts found the strict measure discriminatory. Larry Taylor's bill to the state House.

In Indiana, supporters contended that the proposal would give women a chance to save their baby if they changed their mind.

It also added a two-year IN residency requiremen and qualification requirements, including that the person must have at one point been a teacher, principal or superintendent (or held those licenses) for five years. Currently, those members are jointly appointed by the governor and the state schools superintendent.

Nevertheless, the committee voted, 8-4, along party lines, to advance the revised legislation to the full chamber.

Speaking in opposition, Senate Minority Leader Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) said, if the bill becomes laws, voters will be disenfranchised.

Though no one openly discussed the turmoil in the office when the former Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz, a Democrat, clashed with former Gov. Mike Pence, a Republican, there were references to the acrimony and dysfunction of that era. Dan Patrick's priorities for the legislative session.

Where does the House Freedom Caucus go from from here?
I've been saying for the past year and a half, politically speaking, that the best thing we can do is let Obamacare explode. Trump immediately picked up the phone, called the Washington Post , and said he was pulling the bill.

An effort to make the IN schools chief an appointed position - a top priority for Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb - got new life Monday despite procedural concerns raised by Democrats.

"This represents a very strong collaborative non-partisan effort to try and move IN forward", said Sen.

The bill drew stiff objections from Democrats, including Sen.

"I believe this is the right time to take the Department of Education and position of superintendent out of partisan politics", said House Speaker Brian Bosma. And it would allow current state schools chief Jennifer McCormick, a Republican, to seek a second term.

House Majority Leader Al Carlson (R-Farg0) said the important thing is that the bill decriminalizes medical marijuana - something he says the sponsors forgot to do.

"I'm optimistic we're going to get a deal done", he said.

"It's a beginning. Our schools are vulnerable", said Kiefert, referring to potentially lengthy response times from law enforcement in rural areas.
