MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The state school board has postponed a decision on whether to raise the amount two-year college employees are allowed to receive from vendors.

The board's agenda for Thursday included the item, but the board dropped it at the recommendation of two-year college Chancellor Freida Hill, who said it needed more discussion and likely wouldn't come up again until after Jan. 1.

The board clamped down on gifts in the wake of a two-year college scandal that brought down former Chancellor Roy Johnson and
others.

It prohibited free meals and refreshments from vendors, but some officials said that kept educators from attending conferences where meals were provided.

The board has been considering a limit of $50 per day per employee.
