A group of Iowa lawmakers have approved their spin on the Governor's education reform plan.
The senate panel's version requires increased teacher pay and institutes leadership programs.
Sponsors said it will cost $190 million dollars, which is more expensive than Branstad's plan.
But republicans aren't on board with the changes.
They said it would remove experienced teachers from the classroom to mentor other educators.
The house has already approved a bill limiting raises and making reforms voluntary.
