COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A state lawmaker’s last-ditch effort to insert a repeal of Common Core education standards into another bill has failed.

State Rep. John Adams, a Republican from Sidney in western Ohio, attempted during an Ohio House floor session on Wednesday to add the repeal language into legislation dealing with high school world history courses.

But the bill had already been amended once and so could not technically be amended again. That prevented Adams from being successful, with House Speaker William Batchelder ruling his proposed change out of order.

Adams and other Common Core opponents had hoped to pass legislation this session repealing and replacing the standards. With the Senate expected to adjourn Thursday, that effort appears dead.
