The state Senate this afternoon passed what is being billed as a significant charter school reform bill.

The bill swept through in a 37-13 vote, with all of the opposition coming from Democrats. The House has yet to act on the legislation and may not have time before the summer recess.

The bill streamlines academic standards, grants further oversight power to the state Department of Education, and tightens the rules on charter and cyber schools' spending.
