CHEYENNE — The state Senate has given preliminary endorsement to a bill that would add to the requirements for college-bound students applying for the top tiers of the Hathaway Scholarship.

House Bill 177 passed its first floor debate in the Senate on Thursday. The bill faces two more votes in the chamber. The measure has already passed the House.

The bill would require applicants for the Hathaway honors and performance level scholarships to take either two years of career and vocational education or two years of fine and performing arts courses.

Those two classes would be in addition to the current requirements for math, science, language arts, social studies and a foreign language.
