s1113, the insidious third pillar of Tom Luna’s School Deformation plan, also known as the Teachers for Laptops bill, was pulled back into the Senate Ed committee and appeared to be headed for a much deserved death. Of course some bugs are hard to kill. This morning a closed-door meeting was held with Luna, the Governor and Senate leadership and a plan was hatched to bring this technology bill back under a different name and number. Since they are past the deadline to print bills, they will probably take it to the Special Affairs committee where such rules don’t apply. After printing there they will kick it over to Senate Ed. This bill is important to Luna because he has to have the technology piece to allow his corporate cronies to garner a return on their campaign
More testimony in Boise ahead and another chance to kill this legislation. We were close in senate ed committee last time.
