COLUMBUS -- The House Committee on Education has adjourned without casting an up or down vote on Mayor Frank Jackson's proposed schools plan.
That's a setback for Mayor Frank Jackson and the team trying to get the plan passed by week's end.
Mayor Frank Jackson is meeting with House Speaker William Batchelder and the Education Committee chairperson trying to pull out all the stops to get the measure passed by the end of Friday before the Legislature adjourns for summer.
He has said it's necessary to enable the district to seek a needed levy on the November ballot.
Normally the committee's action and approval would proceed the needed House vote.
The House was in session this afternoon, but no vote has been scheduled.
The measure is expected to pass the Senate if and when it's presented there.
Speaker Batchelder has said the House may reconvene next month to consider the mayor's plan.
Many charter school operators have opposed the mayor's plan to establish a committee to govern those in Cleveland.
