Photo Walk at the Bath CLASSES a Veterans Benefits Field in recent days with theft- paperwork that now takes nil passage of Senate Bill 1. This bill, known as the "reachers Can Teach" bill, is a wide-ranging measure that will deliver sweeping education reform and effec- tively repeal Common Core standards, The measure will change how Kentucky public schools are held account- able for student progress as well as how teachers are evaluated. It will place more control and account- debate, and media atten-ability in the hands of lo- tion from across the globe cal school districts, giving -] wrapped up what started them a stronger voice in lime from teachers and ad- rninistrators. The measure passed by wide margins and with nearly unanimous support in both the Sen- ate and House. It has been delivered to the governor's office to be signed into law. In addition to passing ma- jor bills this week, we over- rode four vetoes issued by the governor shortly before we returned to the Capitol on March 29 after a two-week recess. The gov- ernor's four vetoes focused on measures dealing with the regulation of drones, cludes provisions to re- move licensing restrictions that make it harder for felons to find jobs. It also makes improvements in reentry substance abuse supervision. House Bill 13 lays out the foundations for a new veter- ans' nursing home in West- ern Kentucky. House Bill 128 will en- sure that public schools are allowed to offer elective Bible literacy classes to stu- dents. House Bill 206 establish- es the Dual Credit Schol- arship Program, allowing or duty location that is 100 miles or more from the worker's home. House Bill 522 is another bill aimed at helping state agency minors by allow- ing children who are at least 17 years old to seek a high school equivalency diploma. House Bill 524 will help tight human trafficking by requiring public schools to display the National Hu- man Trafficking Reporting Hotline information and will require the hotline number of the National Hu- man Trafficking Resource big-picture summary of the highly successful 2017 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly. In the months to come, lawmak- ers will continue studying and discussing the issues we are likely to take up in next year's session. If you would like to offer input on the work lawmakers have completed in this year's session or the issues we have yet to tackle, I hope you will take the time to share your thoughts. If you have any questions or comments about these issues or any other public as a quiet final week of the improving performance by court-ordered treatment high school students to use Center to be posted at rest policy issue, please call ii 2017 Session of the Ken- both students and teachers, for certain mentally ill pen- education credits for both areas.
