Gov. Terry Branstad is going to sign an education policy bill for the second time.

Branstad has scheduled a "re-enactment" of the original bill signing for Thursday. Spokesman Tim Albrecht says the event is being held at the request of an organization that advocates for families that homeschool their children.

The education legislation approved by the Legislature in May will provide more basic school funding for the next two academic years, as well as offer money to districts that adopt a program to raise minimum teacher pay and offer leadership incentives.

The legislation also lifts some restrictions on homeschooling in Iowa.

Albrecht says the governor will sometimes re-enact a bill signing at the request of individuals or groups.
