Bill language is now available for four pieces of education-related legislation proposed this winter by Gov. Paul LePage.

The four pieces of legislation are:
- An Act to Ensure Effective Teaching and School Leadership
- An Act to Remove Inequity in Student Access to Certain Schools
- An Act to Expand Educational Opportunities for Maine Students
- An Act to Enhance Career and Technical Education
The bill language is available in PDF form at http://www.maine.gov/education/first/index.html.
Public hearings have been scheduled for March 13-15. Visit the website above for details.
