Education policy bill likely moving to negotiation
DES MOINES (AP) — The Senate took steps Wednesday to move an education policy proposal aimed at improving Iowa schools to a negotiating committee.
The Democratic-majority Senate voted 26-24 in a party-line vote to amend a House version of the bill to match the Senate proposal. The bill will now go back to the Republican-controlled House, with the expectation that it will soon move to a joint conference committee for negotiations.
“We’re not yet at the end point but we’re getting closer. It will eventually go to conference committee where I am optimistic we can work out our differences,” said Sen. Herman Quirmbach, D-Ames, who chairs the Senate education committee.
