LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- At long last Kentucky lawmakers are finally passing the so called snow days bill and it is now awaiting the governor's signature.

Both the Kentucky House and Senate have approved a bill that would suspend the state law requiring school districts to have at least 170 days of classes this school year as long as they have at least 1,062 hours of classroom time.

At least seven Kentucky school districts have missed more than 30 days of classes due to snowy weather.

JCPS is trying to determine if this will impact their last day of school which is currently June 12 the graduation dates will likely stay.

Beshear is expected to sign the bill on Monday, March 31.
