The Florida Senate has removed a controversial requirement that would force school districts to share voter-approved referendum money with charter schools, according to the Palm Beach County School District.

Opponents say the requirement goes against the will of the voters.

Public school teachers rallied against the bill this week in West Palm Beach.

Since the Senate removed the requirement the bill heads back to the Florida House.
