2016 House Bill 5383

Senate Roll Call 422: Passed

To concur with the House-passed version of the bill, except for two changes. The Senate added language clarifying that none of the bailout money will come out of the state school aid fund (meaning from money available for other schools), and clarifying that state officials have the authority to close a failing charter school. The bill does not contain provisions previously passed by the Senate that would give a mayoral commission the power to ration charter schools in Detroit.
