Education reform bills go to governor

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Senate passed two bills to make higher education more affordable for Hoosiers Thursday. They now head to Gov. Mike Pence for signature.

The first bill is Senate Bill 182, which requires the Indiana Commission for High Education and colleges to develop policies to allow students with a two-year degree to transfer their credits to a related four-year degree program.

The second bill, Senate Bill 406, created a unified program for teaching college-level classes to high school students for dual credit.
