Sen. Leising (R-Oldenburg) authored Senate Bill 114 for students attending the State Fair.

A bill authored by a local senator is seeking excused absences from school.

Senate Bill 114, offered by Sen. Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg), would grant up to five absences from classes for students participating in the FFA, 4-H, or other organizations at the Indiana State Fair.

Leising wrote the bill in response to the start of the school year beginning earlier and overlapping with some events at the State Fair, making it difficult for students to participate in the projects.

The proposal was given thumbs-up by the House Economic Committee this week and will now be considered by the full House.
