Education Officials Urge Veto For Mo. School Bill
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Some local education officials want Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to veto legislation that would allow students facing long bus rides to enroll in a closer district. Under the legislation, students could enroll in a nearby district if they live at least 17 miles from the school they are supposed to attend and the other district is at least 7 miles closer. The measure is aimed at the St. Albans, St. Elizabeth and Gravois Mills areas.
School transportation bill is HB1789
