Senate passes education bill

Sen. Glenn Grothman's substitute amendment to the state superintendent bill has been ruled non-germane, and the Senate passed SB 437 by an 18-15 vote.

The bill must still pass the state Assembly before heading to the governor.

Other bills to gain Senate approval today include:

-- SB 585: A bill to prohibit employee discrimination against workers who decline to attend non-work functions was approved by a voice vote despite concerns over the bill's constitutionality from some Republicans.

-- SB 625: This bill, which makes technical changes to the streamlined sales and use tax, passed on a 18-15 party-line vote.

-- SB 656: The Senate votes 19-14 to offer $10 million in bonding for a new dental school in Marshfield, contingent on non-state matching funds from the Marshfield Clinic. Sen. Luther Olsen, R-Ripon, joined Democrats in supporting the bill.

-- SB 273: A bill to create an additional renewable energy credit for utilities to sell under the state's renewable portfolio standard hits a snag when some Dems propose an amendment to include additional fuel sources under the bill. The amendment is adopted while three other amendments by the bill's author, Mark Miller, D-Monona, are turned away. The Senate approved the bill 24-8.
