Schools around the state may have a lot less "red tape" to cut through.

A group of Republicans in the state senate have introduced bills eliminating some of the hundreds of reports that schools are required to file every year.

They say the reports chew up time and resources that would be better spent on students, said Senator Phil Pavlov.

"You know many of these reports don't serve any value any more. Many of them are redundant. Many of them don't hold any value to the education system."

Several school superintendents are supporting the bills.
