SB278 just passed unanimously in the full Senate.

A House bill dropped yesterday and will have to go through committee/a full House before the legislation is able to be signed into law.

Checking Legiscan to see where these bills (SB278 and the companion in the House, HB431) stand:  a hearing is scheduled tomorrow (May 24th) before the House Ways and Means committee.  I believe that the committee must approve the bill before it will be sent back to the House for final approval (three readings seem to be necessary).

The House has signed off by a 66-27 count but the Senate must concur on two (surprisingly common-sense) amendments made in the House.

Here's the precedent that everyone will be latching onto when other schools start to go under. Every nervous college president and general counsel is printing off this legislation, ready to present it to their local representatives in the event things get dicey--which we all know for some that "dicey" moment is already here or coming very soon.

Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feelin' alright.

The SAA announced Stacey LaDew will succeed Jay Gardiner.  She comes to the conference from the HCAC, where she is Associate Commissioner and Senior Woman Administrator, and chaired the HCAC Championships committee where she helped oversee championships and playoffs.
