JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri Senate has given first-round approval to a bill that would create a fund to develop so-called "Innovation Campuses."
The campuses are designed to help students complete their degrees sooner and land jobs in high-need fields. Projects involve partnerships between colleges and universities, businesses and, frequently, area school districts to help students earn college credits and get work experience.
Currently, some of the campuses are funded through grants, but the measure endorsed Tuesday would allow state funds to be appropriated for the project. It needs one more vote before moving to the House.
The bill's sponsor is Republican Sen. Will Kraus, of Lee's Summit.
