TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A bill introduced in the Kansas House would require the state's schools to provide evidence in classrooms questioning the existence of climate change.

The bill, introduced last week, says instruction about scientific controversies should include evidence for and against the theory. The only controversy identified in the bill is "climate science."

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/11SodvN ) no hearings have been scheduled for the bill before the House Education Committee.

The bill comes at the same time the Kansas State Board of Education is preparing to vote on new science standards, which are still being developed.

Another bill currently in the Education Committee would require the State Board of Education to replace and English standards that it adopted in 2010.
