JACKSON HOLE, WYO – A third reading for Senate File 49 took state lawmakers into the late hours of the afternoon today before finally passing third reading 33-26.
The bill would exempt private schools—specifically Jackson Hole Classical Academy (JHCA)—from county zoning authority, as public schools are currently exempted.
Legislators opposed to the bill attempted to tack on three last-minute amendments, one of which would delay the bill’s effective date until April 1, 2020. All were voted down.
SF49 now heads to the governor’s desk for signing. If signed into law, JHCA could begin construction on a new campus in South Park as soon as next month, barring any legal action.
