Farrow says Legislature may take no action on accountability

MADISON - The Senate Education Reform Committee's chairman agrees with his Republican colleague in the state Assembly that the Wisconsin Legislature may do nothing on school accountability this session.

Sen. Paul Farrow's committee was scheduled to vote on a school accountability bill on Thursday but he took the bill off the agenda. The committee ultimately did nothing with it.
