The bill to allow municipal schools in
Shelby County passed the House Finance Committee. It now moves to the Calendar Committee to be
scheduled for a House floor vote.
The Senate version of the bill, SB
1353, is also
ready for a vote on the Senate floor.
If this Bill becomes law, the six Shelby County suburbs
are prepared to hold a referendum, elect school boards and hope to open
municipal schools by 2014.
