It's essentially an appeals board that can approve charter schools if local districts don't. The commission has only used that power a couple of times.
Representative Monique Davis, a Democrat from Chicago, says the state's board of education should have the authority to oversee all charter schools.
"We accidentally, mistakenly established a board with equal authority to our state board of education and we realize it's an error."
Those who oppose the measure say it's aimed at killing charter schools entirely. A host of measures dealing with charters is expected this year, as negotiations had been off the table in years past.
