SALT LAKE CITY — Members of the Senate Education Committee gave the first nod of approval to a bill that would extend the Education Task Force for another year.
The task force, which is comprised of House and Senate leadership, was created last year to work through issues facing public and higher education, as well as provide a unified vision for legislative priorities.
"One of the major things we want to address is education funding and whether we’re taking the right approach," SB150 sponsor Sen. Stuart Reid, R-Ogden, said about goals for future task force meetings.
The bill advanced out of committee unanimously and will now be heard by the full Senate.
