A bill that is part of the Common Core accord won final approval Monday when the Senate approved it 39-0.

The proposal is Senate Bill 43 and is sponsored by Senate Education Committee Chairman Conrad Appel, R-Metairie.

Under the plan, changes in Common Core recommended by the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education would face scrutiny by the House and Senate education committees and future governors.

The legislation says that, during those reviews, the changes can only be accepted or rejected as a package.

The proposal is the second of three that has won final approval in a bid to trim controversy over the

benchmarks in reading, writing and math.

The third measure, which would change assessments on the standards for the 2015-16 school year, faces a final vote in the state House on Tuesday.

It is House Bill 542.

Gov. Bobby Jindal, who opposes Common Core, backs the agreement.
