Yup, It Passed

Here is another Times-Picayune story on the bill. It addresses both concerns in the last post:

An amendment added by Rep. Don Trahan, R-Lafayette and the committee's chairman, gives the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education the ability to prohibit introduction of materials, but that didn't mollify the bill's opponents.

"Anything could get into the classroom," said Barbara Forrest, a philosophy professor at Southeastern Louisiana University and a member of the Louisiana Coalition for Science.

She is right. Also, it would be hard for the oversight board to not become politicized.
