LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lawmakers on a Nebraska education committee are looking for new long-term goals for the state’s K-12 schools and colleges.

Senators voted 33-0 to advance the bill on Tuesday that would create a “statewide vision” for education.

Sen. Kate Sullivan of Cedar Rapids, chairwoman of the Education Committee, says its members will reach out to various groups to help determine what the state’s goals and priorities should be for education. Possible changes include changes to the state aid formula for schools.

At least three public hearings would be held as part of the process. The committee would issue its report to the Legislature before the end of the year.
