While legislation to allow casino gambling has stalled in the House, a move to radically change student evaluation tests has been approved by the Senate.
Senate Bill 1, eliminating open-ended essay questions in the Commonwealth Accountability Testing System testing in favor of multiple choice tests, has gained significant attention from many sides in the General Assembly including Gov. Steve Beshear.
On March 7, the bill's sponsor, Senate President David Williams, R-Burkesville, brought the measure to the floor.
