Legislation To Close Schools With Fewer Than 25 Students?

Rep. Gattis has been in the news lately saying she plans to introduce legislation to close schools with fewer than 25 students, an issue that Sen. Dunleavy brought up last session.

I talked to Sens. Stedman and Bishop, and Reps. Nagiak and Talerico, all majority members.
