Legislation aimed at helping Missouri high school students who have substance use disorders will be heard Tuesday morning by a Missouri House committee in Jefferson City.

House Elementary and Secondary Education Committee Chairman Rep. Chuck Basye (R-Rocheport) will testify this morning before his committee. He’ll present his four-page House Bill 1753, which authorizes up to four pilot recovery high schools, which would serve as an alternative public high school setting and recovery program for students in recovery.

Chairman Basye tells 939 the Eagle that the schools would be located in metropolitan areas.  This morning’s hearing begins at 8 in Jefferson City. Anyone who wants to testify about the bill can do so, at that time.
