One of the proposals to repeal Alaska’s high school exit exam is stuck in a House committee drawer while the financial implications of the bill are worked out.
The House finance committee considered HB220 Tuesday, but did not advance the bill despite widespread support for the concept. Members said details about the state’s contract with its test provider were unclear.
“This test did not do it’s job,” Rep. Tammie Wilson, R-North Pole, said. “I want to make sure people out there don’t think we’re doing away with something that worked.”
