The state Senate voted 23-16 Wednesday afternoon to approve a key piece of legislation in Gov. Bobby Jindal’s education revamp.

The legislation that would revamp public school teacher job protection laws was amended, which means the measure will have to return to the Louisiana House.

The changes were minor.

The proposal is House Bill 974. It is one of Gov. Bobby Jindal’s key bills to revamp public school operations.
