FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) - A law passed by the Legislature in 2009 to link student behavior to driver’s license qualification has not been implemented.

Former state Rep. Mike Curtis of Greenhill sponsored the legislation. The law ties school behavior to when a student may qualify for a driver’s permit or license. The TimesDaily (https://bit.ly/1vxBa8J ) reports that the law was supposed to be implemented for the 2010-2011 school year.

An educator who helped write the legislation, Lisa Moses Reburn, says it’s difficult to get answers about why the law still isn’t implemented five years after passage.

A spokeswoman for the state Department of Education says the department agrees the law would be beneficial, but the technical aspect hasn’t been worked out.

Curtis is bringing attention to the law while running for the state Senate.
