MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

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.
