Plan to Close School Ends

A committee in the South Dakota Senate has killed a bill that would have changed the state constitution and allowed closure of the South Dakota School for the Deaf. The governor tried to close the campus last year but the parents filed a federal class-action lawsuit saying state's constitution prevented the move. The bill's sponsor, Al Novstrup, says there is a new proposal that would make the bill unnecessary.
