General Assembly Adopts Much-Lauded Charter School Regulatory Compromise

Legislation regulating the charter school industry that lawmakers described as "landmark" is headed to the governor's desk following Wednesday's bicameral adoption of a conference committee report.

The House voted 91-6 and the Senate voted unanimously to accept the final version of the overhaul bill (HB 2*) that a day earlier emerged from conference committee with 32 changes. Most of the amendments clarify and expand on the upper chamber's version. (See Gongwer Ohio Report, October 6, 2015)
