INDIANAPOLIS  — Indiana would pay up to $9,000 of student loans for some teachers under a measure headed to Gov. Mike Pence.

The legislation sponsored by Democratic Rep. Justin Moed of Indianapolis would provide loan reimbursements for some of those teaching science, technology, engineering or math.

The reimbursements would only be available to teachers who performed at the top of their class in high school and college. Moed says the measure is designed to keep talented teachers in Indiana while training new students in critical areas.

Lawmakers gave final approval to the proposal Monday. It now goes to the governor for consideration.
