I think it will be another hard-fought battle." Senate Bill I was passed after four special legislative sessions in 1990. "I had hoped that they might look at it a little more in detail. Obviously they still feel it is unconstitutional," he said. Local school officials were not surprised by the ruling Tuesday. Set SCHOOLS, Page I ;
