Jerry Brown’s sweeping school finance and accountability plan that legislators enacted as part of the state budget in June.
But key bills do await action, as legislators head toward the end of session on Sept. 13. Chief among them is a decision on what state standardized tests to discontinue this year, which to suspend and resume later, and which to continue. The proposed changes are in Assembly Bill 484, which Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla, D-Concord, is sponsoring on behalf of State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.
