Oregon House to try again on education bills
Monday, June 20, 2011
SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- The Oregon Legislature will try again to vote on a slate of education bills.
The state House is scheduled to vote on 14 bills on Tuesday, a day after the first effort flamed out. Altogether, the bills would provide more money for schools and would significantly remake the structure of education in Oregon.
The effort fell apart late Monday after the first of the bills to be considered in the House failed in a tied vote. The Republican priority measure would expand access to online charter schools and is the first bill on the House's schedule on Tuesday.
