BATON ROUGE- Lawmakers are scheduled to vote on another part of Governor Bobby Jindal's pension reform.

The bill would base retirement on a state worker's last five years of employment instead of the current three year window.

The House Education Committee is set to vote on a number of bills.   One eliminates extended sick leave for public school teachers and employees.  Another limits class size for K-4 classes and requires two teachers.

Senate Finance is scheduled to vote on a bill dealing with the Juban Crossing retail project.  It creates a special tax district.
