State House leaders this week rolled out Senate Bill 508 containing a slate of technical corrections to the recently enacted state budget law, and the new bill includes a proposed change to the state’s new early graduate program. S508 gained approval in the House and was sent to the Senate for concurrence, but the Senate did not consider it Wednesday before both chambers recessed their legislative session until Nov. 29th.
The recently enacted 2023 state budget includes several provisions adjusting or clarifying requirements for public schools under the Parents’ Bill of Rights, which became law in mid-August following the state legislature’s successful override of Governor Cooper’s earlier veto of the bill. Because much of the bill became effective only days before most traditional public schools were set to begin the 2023-2024 school year, many school leaders raised questions and concerns about quickly implementing the bill’s numerous new requirements.
While the biggest news at the state legislature last week was certainly the long-awaited passage of the 2023-2025 state budget package, which is set to become law on October 2 without the Governor’s signature, state lawmakers also sent a handful of other education-related bills to the Governor’s desk last week for final consideration.
After weeks of little activity at the state legislature, lawmakers on Wednesday successfully voted to override Governor Cooper’s vetoes of several bills, including a handful relating to K-12 education, which have now become law.
