12:46 PM -- Jennifer Mello, from Brandeberry-Mckenna, a contract lobbying firm representing the State Board of Education and the Department of Education, walked the Committee through a spreadsheet of the reporting requirements included in the draft bill, as well as the Board and the Department's perspective on those requirements. After Representative Thurlow moved to introduce the bill, the Committee members continued their discussion and decided to table the discussion on the draft bill until the next meeting, when the draft bill would be amended to include the recommendations of the Board and the Department.

1:13 PM -- Kachina Weaver, legislative liaison for the Department of Higher Education, then testified before the Committee concerning the reporting requirements included in the draft bill relating to higher education and which requirements the department believed would be important to continue. The Committee also asked for the draft bill to be split into two draft bills: One for the Department of Education and one for the Department of Higher Education. The decision then was made to table the discussion on the Department of Higher Education draft bill, and that staff would return at the next meeting with a new draft, which would be amended to include the recommendations of the Department of Higher Education.
