Legislature’s Organization day may see a bill on first day

There might be more than organizing on the legislature’s Organization Day. That’s the hope of Bloomington Senator Mark Stoops, who is pushing a bill to prevent last school year’s ISTEP scores from affecting school grades and teacher pay. The scores are expected to be much lower, and Stoops says lawmakers have to act now because the state sends out teacher bonus money on December 5th. Republicans haven’t planned any major votes on Organization Day, which is next Tuesday.
