Future of 'abortion reversal' bill in doubt

Once defeated the Indiana Senate will vote again on the state school superintendent bill

Once defeated the Indiana Senate will vote again on the state school superintendent bill

A bill providing extra security for judges and other court officials is headed to the full Texas Senate.

An Indiana Senate committee Monday endorsed a bill that would make the state's school chief an appointed rather than an elected position despite debate over whether the Senate could even legally hear the measure.

House Speaker Brian Bosma, who authored the bill, says the last seven governors - four Republicans and three Democrats - have supported the change.

Long, R-Fort Wayne, said it was different because House Bill 1005 was amended to change the date the bill would take effect from 2021 to 2025 and added a number of requirements for the person selected for the role. It passed 26-5 Monday, and heads to the state House.

Fans celebrate lives of actresses Fisher, Reynolds
Todd Fisher , Reynolds' son, organised the public memorial and shared family stories, bringing laughter and tears to the audience. He said: "The public is invited because that's how my mother would want it". "I'm calling it a show, not a memorial".

In hearings before the Senate committees and the full chamber, Young said SB 423 was created to bring IN post-secondary institutions into compliance with existing laws already applicable to other governmental entities. The governor elected in 2024 would be the first to appoint the superintendent.

"That is not enough, according to experts and the agency itself, but it's a huge step forward", says State Sen. The new secretary of education would have to have at least five years of education experience, and would have to have been an IN resident for two years.

Senate rules generally prohibit the language of a defeated measure, or any "substantially similar" language, from again being considered for the remainder of the legislative session.

Koppelman said the bill, which is a revival of a similar bill he offered last legislative session, has a few key differences this year, including allowing parents to opt their child out of any testing "not part of a curriculum, to which the parent has philosophical, moral or religious objection".

The move fits in line with signals that the Trump administration views climate leadership and economics as diametrically opposed. The decision in Nebraska rests in the hands of an independent commission, with members elected by voters.

With a 167-4 state House vote, Georgia is a step closer to expanding the state's medical marijuana registry to patients who have six new diagnoses or who are in hospice.

He told the committee, "The superintendent must have experience in public schools, and the people of in should have the right to elect this office".

The 11-member State Board of Education is appointed and oversees K-12 policy-making for the Indiana General Assembly. "The only reason they are pushing the rules to the side is to hide the fact they were not able to get the Senate version of the bill through their own caucus". He said he had hoped the changes wouldn't have to be made but he understood the Senate rule.
