PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Extend for another five years chapter 658 of the laws of 2002 which enabled a legal resident whose immigration status is that of a lawful permanent resident of the United States and who would otherwise be eligible and qualified to serve as a teacher, to apply for and to receive permanent certification as a teacher.
