INDIANAPOLIS, IN — A bill working its way through the Indiana legislature is looking to address the state's teacher shortages.

House Bill 1637 would raise the scholarship amounts for several teacher education programs in the state.

The bill passed out of the committee on education on Friday.
During testimony, Indiana educators said HB 1637 would allow for more aspiring teachers to get in the education field and help cut down the costs associated with getting a degree.

The bill will now go before the Ways and Means committee for further debate.
