cn|2 Pure Politics: Rep. Greer will again file bill to raise the drop-out age in Kentucky to 18

State Rep. Jeff Greer, D-Brandenburg, said he’ll try again to get his colleagues to raise the age in which Kentuckians must remain in school from 16 to 18, which also is the top agenda item for Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear.

“We need to take the next step. Our kids need this,” Greer said on Pure Politics Tuesday. He said he will file the measure this week as the 2011 General Assembly begins its work. cn|2 Pure Politics January 4, 2011
