Pennsylvania legislators were moving to adopt a “charter reform” bill that would have benefited charters mightily.
In response to the loud outcry from supporters of public education, some Republican legislators switched sides at the last minute and the bill died.

This post explains why the bill failed and why it deserved to fail.
The bill will be back, and so will the supporters of public education.
Keep your eye on Pennsylvania.
